They say a picture is worth a 1000 words and this might not look the best and it took me a little while to “pluck up the courage” to make it. So here is the verdict! Do yourself the flavour (get it) and give this a go!
This dip has a great contrast with the sweet and the savoury flavours. I particularly enjoy the lovely crunch texture enhanced from the nuts.
- 180g sweet potato, cubed
- 2 garlic cloves, peeled
- 10g olive oil
- 1 tsp ThermoFun Moroccan Spice
- 15g lemon juice
- 20g cashews
- 20g tahini
- 40g pistachio nuts (no shells)
- sesame seeds for sprinkling on top
- Pre-heat oven to 210°C.
- Place sweet potato and garlic onto a baking tray. Drizzle with oil and bake for 40 mins.
- Place all ingredients into TM bowl and chop 1 sec / Turbo.
- Scrape down and repeat until desired consistency.
I roast a head of garlic so I always have it on hand for recipes like this. I break the cloves apart but leave the skins on. I top up my stash I keep in the fridge whenever I use the oven for something. Roasting brings out a lovely sweet caramelised flavour that isn't as harsh as raw garlic in recipes that aren’t cooked.
