Side Dish, Snack
spicy sweet potatoes, roasted spicy sweet potatoes
Sweet potatoes, unpeeled, scrubbed well and cubed
Rice wine vinegar
Chilli bean sauce
You can use any chilli sauce you prefer
Cold-pressed sesame oil or peanut oil
Green onions, Sesame seeds, Red chillis for garnish
Preheat your oven to 220C.
Toss the cubed sweet potatoes with peanut oil and salt.
Spread in a single layer on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are cooked through and lightly browned on top.
I like to move the baking tray to the top rack and turn on the broiler for the last 5-10 minutes. Keep an eye on the veggies though, you don't want them to burn.
While the sweet potatoes are roasting, make the sauce.
Combine the sriracha sauce, rice wine vinegar, maple syrup, soy sauce, and chilli bean sauce in a small bowl. Taste and adjust for spicy/ sweet flavors.
As soon as your sweet potatoes are out of the oven, carefully pour the sauce on top and mix well. Watch your hands, the tray will be hot!
Taste and adjust for seasoning. Stir in the sesame oil or peanut oil for the finishing touch.
Transfer to a serving bowl, sprinkle with green onions, sesame seeds, and fresh chilli slices.
Serve hot and enjoy!
