Do you love entertaining?

I do.

And this is the perfect snack I created for just that.

The sauces combined with the sweet potato flavour really leaving you wanting more and more!

So here is this weeks recipe for…

Sweet Potato Wedges with a Trio of Dipping Sauces

Ingredients for Wedges

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1⁄4 – 1⁄2 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons of Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of Garlic powder
  • Several sprigs of rosemary to crush up and garnish at the end
  • Olive oil – for drizzling over the potatoes half way through roasting

Ingredients for honey Dijon sauce

  • 1/2 cup Natural Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Creamy Pesto Sauce

For the Chipotle Tomato Sauce

  • 1/2 cup fire-roasted, diced tomatoes
  • 2 Chilli’s (finely diced) or 1 – 2 teaspoons of minced Chilli
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
Instructions for Wedges:
  • 1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2. Mix together your egg whites, cayenne pepper, paprika powder and garlic powder until frothy. Coat your potatoes with this mixture.
  • 3. Strategically place your potato wedges on the baking sheet. You want to keep plenty of space between the wedges. The more space — the more air can travel to each wedge and roast it up beautifully. If you crowd them, they’ll steam each other out. Sweet potatoes really have a high water content (which I have learned so many times making soggy wedges).
  • 4. Roast for 25 minutes. Do not flip in between. After 25 minutes, take your olive oil and drizzle over the potatoes and sprinkle your crushed up rosemary sprigs all over.
  • 5. Roast for an additional 15 minutes — checking after 10 minutes until they reach a beautiful golden orange-brown colour.

Instructions for all dips

  • Mix all ingredients together and place in seperate bowls for dipping.

I hope you enjoy this one!

Much love
