Any ideas for sweet potatoes, please, as I have a load in the fridge and need inspiration? We are vegetarian, and it needs to be suitable for freezing, as well. I normally do a sort of sweet potato + red lentil sauce which goes well with rice etc., but would like something different for a change.

Sweet potatoe pie - mashed SP with cheese & fried onion

Sweet Potatoe chips (won't freeze tho')

My DH does a sweet potatoe pudding (dessert) but the ingredient change everytime he does it - so I can't tell you how

Pie - as in a pastry case? Sounds really, erm, filling, have you tried it KatyMac?

Just realised, should have put this in recipe section really, sorry

No pie as Oven proof dish and under the grill to brown

Mindees have it at least once a fortnight usually with beans, DH has is as his "potatoes" with any sort of meat.

It's DD's fav

sweet potato dauphinoise
like wiht normal spuds but use them

frannyf Sat 09-Jul-05 21:50:37

That sounds gorgeous Katy, just wondering if I could freeze it, probably not I guess. I like to cook in bulk at the weekend and then reheat things in the week, also they need cooking NOW (well, this weekend) and there are a lot of them.

I guess dauphinoise would not freeze either? It has cream in, right?

KatyMac Sat 09-Jul-05 21:53:12

Yes I make 2 or 3 at a time and freeze what's left - either whole dishes or individual spoon foods (for when I have an unexpected baby and need easily mashable food or for a treat for DD to have with her tea)

But if my helper KJ is around I rarely have any left between her & DH we have arguments about how they each deserve the larger portion of what's left

KatyMac Sat 09-Jul-05 21:54:11

I would say cooked dauphinesse (sp) would freeze fine - but I freeze most things and learn by my mistakes

KatyMac Sat 09-Jul-05 21:54:51

Can't you just parboil and freeze anyway - then you could get them out as you need (like for chips)

frannyf Sat 09-Jul-05 22:02:47

So the pie is just cooked sweet potato, mashed with grated cheese and fried onions, browned under the grill, and it freezes ok? Fab. Sounds easy and I fancy some right now!

frannyf Sat 09-Jul-05 22:03:49

Not sure about parboiling and freezing, I would worry they would come out mushy (but am a bit lairy of freezing things generally).

KatyMac Sat 09-Jul-05 22:03:53

The more onions the tastier (IMO) and if you have to ask if you have added enough cheese then you haven't

How do you make sweet potato chips, I've tried and only got soggy things that are black round the edges. I boiled them for 3 minutes then fried in very shallow oil.

KatyMac Sat 09-Jul-05 22:44:48

Well i slice them rather than chip them (iysim)
Then I par boil for about 10 mins
The into hot fat until golden brown

hugh fearnley whitsisname has a recipe for sweet potato and chilli bake - will try and find it (tomorrow!)

frannyf Sun 10-Jul-05 13:14:25

Made the sweet potato, cheese and onion bake thing - my son loved it and have stuck some in the freezer for later, so thanks for that. Any other ideas still useful though.
