Share recipe


  • 1 sweet potato, medium
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, to rub (optional)
  • 1 tsp tahini
  • 1 squeeze lemon, (optional)
  • 1 tbsp pesto
  • 1 small handful walnuts, broken up
  • 1 handful rocket


Step 1

Take your sweet potato, wash it, then prick the skin all over with a fork.

Step 2

If you have some, rub a little olive oil over each potato, but it’s not essential. Place on a plate and microwave (800W) for 6-10 mins, or until the flesh is soft and cooked through. Meanwhile, in a cup or small bowl, loosen your tahini by stirring in a little water and a good squeeze of lemon (optional) until it’s a saucy consistency.

Step 3

When the sweet potato is cooked, cut down the middle and fluff the flesh with a fork a little. Then drizzle over the tahini, top with the pesto, sprinkle with a few walnuts and serve with rocket leaves.
