Garlic & Ginger Sweet Potatoes

prep 15 mins cook 45–50 mins
  • 2–3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 3 tablespoons olive or argan oil
  • 25 g (1 oz) fresh root ginger, peeled and cut into very thin sticks
  • 2–3 garlic cloves, peeled and cut into thin sticks
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • small bunch of coriander, finely chopped, to garnish

Put the sweet potato chunks in the base of a tagine or ovenproof dish, drizzle over the oil and toss in the ginger and garlic.

Place the tagine, uncovered, in a preheated oven, 200°C (400°F), Gas Mark 6, for 45–50 minutes until the sweet potato is tender and some pieces are slightly caramelized. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with the coriander and serve as a side dish with roasted or grilled meats or with couscous, if liked.
