  • 2 sweet potato (each 300 - 400g)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (optional and awesome)
  • 1 pinch salt (optional and awesome)

For the dressing


  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/380°F.
  • Give the potatoes a quick scrub and cut them into small cubes (roughly 2x2cm - see photo or video).
  • Then throw them into a bowl, and use a spatula to make sure they get a good coating of oil. Sprinkle some salt over too.
  • Layer the cubes out on a baking tray, ideally with parchment paper and in they go for 25 mins. Halfway through give them a bit of mix with said spatula.
  • In the meantime peel and crush the pistachio (we found the easiest way was to put them in a bowl after shelling and use something sturdy and heavy like a thick glass or end of a rolling pin to crush them).
  • Wash and slice the spring onion into fine rings, then add them to the bowl.
  • Add the basil to the bowl too (cut first if using leaves). Add the maple syrup, mustard, olive oil and water. Stir well.
  • Fetch the potatoes from the oven, and serve them onto the plates.
  • Add the dressing to one side of the bowl. Enjoy!
