Sweet Potato Sticks with Date Sauce

Right now we have a heavy heat wave here in Germany. Up to 38°C!!! You baerly can do anything.

But the weather doesn't take down my mood (at least this is my firm will) and I breast the waves with good mood food. As a big fan of the sweet potato I had today a super-quick meal: sweet potato sticks with sweet chili (yes, you have to fight fire with fire!). I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
For 4 portions.

For the sweet-potato-sticks:
6 sweet potatoes
4-6 tablespoons olive oil
salt, pepper, nutmeg

Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1 cm (1/2 inch) slices. Mix them in a bowl with olive oil and herbs, then bake them at upper/lower heat and 200°C (360°F) for 20-25 minutes. The sticks are ready if they look brown and crispy.

For the tasty dip:
2 bellpeppers
1 chili peppers, red
1 small pcs. ginger (about 1/2 teaspoon)
4 dates, pitted
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tablespoon oliveoil
salt, pepper

Remove the core of the bellpepper, cut off the stem of the chili, then mince all ingredients roughly and throw them into the mixer. Puree thoroughly for 30-60 minutes.
Let the sauce simmer at medium heat for 10-15 minutes till it thickens.

Serve the sticks with the sauce and catch fire ;-) Bon appétit!
