Ingredients

  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • extravirgin olive oil
  • sea salt and black pepper

For the guacamole:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • ½ small red onion finely chopped
  • 1 to mato deseeded, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1-2 tbsp organic greek yogurt depending how runny you want the guacamole
  • 1 chilli red or green, deseeded and finely chopped
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/ 375F.
  • For the guacamole: put the avocados in a large bowl and mash very well with a fork.
  • Slowly fold in yogurt and lime juice, and mix until you reach a creamy consistency. Add in chopped tomatoes & onion, coriander and chilli. Season to taste and refreigerate until ready to serve.
  • For the Hasselback Potatoes: remove a tiny slice of flesh from the bottom so the potatoes sit flat on the cutting board.
  • Place a wooden spoon on either side of the potatoes and, with the help of a sharp knife, slice all the way through the potatoes as thinly as you can, just until the knife blade hits the wooden spoon.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and season well with sea salt and pepper, arrange on a baking tray and cover with foil.
  • Bake for about 40 mins, then remove foil and drizzle with a glug of olive oil, and continue to cook for a further 10 mins, until the potatoes are crispy and cooked through.
  • Top the sweet potatoes with guacamole and serve. Enjoy!
