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 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:
1 chili peppers, red
1 small pcs. ginger (about 1/2 teaspoon)
4 dates, pitted
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tablespoon oliveoil
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!
