1.25 kg sweet potato, peeled, cut into 4cm pieces
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 long red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
¼ cup sour cream
¼ cup finely chopped fresh chives
- Boil, steam or microwave sweet potato until tender. Drain.
- Place sweet potato in a large roasting pan with oil, maple syrup and chillies. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in a single layer.
