The Dipping Series
This dip is a little bit hatke. I’ve been a fan of the loaded baked potato (who isn’t?), but I am always wary of making it – after all it is just carbs, and I would choose countless other options!
But sweet potato is one of those feel-good carbs, because it’s a complex carb, with better nutrition and a more forgiving status than the unfortunate regular potato. This recipe kept adding to itself as I made it. I roasted the sweet potato cubes and whizzed them up with some soaked cashews for a creamy effect with olive oil, paprika and red chilli flakes. But I wanted to highlight the sweetness of the sweet potato, so I added some honey. And then I craved some texture and colour, so I added spring onions, garnished with paprika and toasted sesame seeds. This works amazing as a dip for crackers, lavash and toasted breads, and especially the assortment of the lavash and crackers by Le Artisan Boulangerie.
