Vegan Roasted Sesame Sweet Potatoes
It's the end of January - perhaps the end of Dry January, Veganuary, or just a healthier month in general. Let's keep the healthy, vegan flame alight in February with this delicious roasted sesame sweet potato recipe! 


  • 6 sweet potatoes, cut into wedges 
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil 
  • 1 tbsp ginger, chopped 
  • 1 garlic clove, diced
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce 
  • Juice from 1 lime 
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds 
  • 50g plan peanuts, crushed 
  • 1 green or red chilli, sliced or diced
  • 3-4 spring onions, chopped


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. On a baking tray, lay out the sweet potatoes and drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil over them. Roast in the oven for about 25 mins until softened. 
  2. Whisk the rest of the oil, garlic, soy sauce, ginger and lime juice and brush it on the sweet potato. Then return to the oven for another 30-40 mins, repeatedly brushing on the mixture until the potatoes are glazed and sticky. 
  3. Remove from the oven then sprinkle on the peanuts and sesame seeds. 
  4. When cool enough to serve, place in a salad bowl and sprinkle over the chilli and onions.
