The only thing I ever make with sweet potatoe is mashing it with normal mash. It is very tasty but I'm sure there are millions of other things I cud dom with it.

Hoping for something easy to cook and tasty. wink

Cut them into wedges, put on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Season and sprinkle on some chilli flakes and then squirt with Fry Light. Bake for 20 mins or so.

Serve with cooling dip. Mix Quark (cream cheese) and plain fromage frais. Add juice of one lemon and some chives. Mix up and dunk. Gorgeous.

Cut the potato into wedges and toss in a little olive oil and black pepper and bake in the oven for about 45 mins - they go all caramelly and yummy.

Can serve with anything but also nice as a snack dipped in philly cheese (my 8mo loves these!!)

The wedges are nice with paprika sprinkled on.

Lovely in a veggie curry.

do you part boil the wedges first? or just put straight in the oven?

Straight in the oven - no need to parboil them.
