I’ve been busy in the kitchen and cooked some wonderful smoky bean burgers with jerk sweet potatoes.
The burgers were great and had a smoky edge courtesy of some BBQ sauce and smoked paprika.
The sweet potatoes were a total dream and so easy to do!
Here’s how I did them:-
Ingredients (Serves 4)
4 sweet potatoes, halved lengthwise
For the jerk seasoning:-
juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp runny honey
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp jerk seasoning
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6/200ºC/400ºF/180º fan assisted
Slash the flesh of each potato half in a criss-cross pattern.
Rub all over with a little olive oil and season with salt and black pepper. Place on a baking tray, flesh side up, and bake for 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, put the jerk seasoning ingredients in a small pan and stir together over a low heat.
After the potatoes have been cooking for 40 minutes, brush the jerk seasoning mixture over the flesh side of the nearly baked potatoes.
Cook for a further 10 minutes.
Hope you like them as much as I did!
