Wordless Wednesday: warm sweet potato and orange salad

Golden kumara (Maori sweet potato) roasted with onions, then mixed with orange segments and topped with walnut halves. I added a drizzle of walnut oil and white balsamic. Yum. Photo: Su Leslie, 2015.

    • I’ve eaten the leftovers of this for breakfast before today; but then again I’m known for “eclectic” breakfast foraging. I can’t remember what sort of sweet potatoes are available in England, but this would work just as well with pumpkin (with a little cinnamon sprinkled on before they roast.

      • Oh that sounds good too. We do have sweet potatoes here – orange fleshed ones imported from somewhere. I tend to roast them cubed with onions and potatoes, and garlic cloves in their skins. It was the addition of the orange and walnuts that grabbed my taste buds.

    • Let me know what you think. I like the dish cos it’s really easy, and lends itself to lots of substitutions (almonds for walnuts), pumpkin for sweet potato, and variations (handful of rocket leaves, dried cranberries). Endless really.
