Sweet potato mash with fennel

Published 2 September, 2008

I've followed this Gordon Ramsay sweet potato recipe a few times, but there comes a time when every man must go it alone. So I tweaked it. Not radically, I'll admit, but noticeably, and with the dover sole I ate it with, I might even go as far as to say it was better. (Don't tell Gordon ;) )

Sweet potato mash with fennel
3 medium-large sweet potatoes, diced and cooked - just underdone is perfect; on this I agree with Gordon. I do mine in the microwave - no loss of flavour or nutrients to water that way.
1 tsp fennel seed, ground up a bit (I use a pestle and mortar)
6 large sage leaves, chopped fairly finely
Small handful coriander leaves, chopped
1 medium onion, sliced finely
1 garlic clove, squished, chopped and mangled
Olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Gently fry your onion and garlic in a couple tbsp of olive oil until soft. Add the fennel seed and fry for a minute. Add the sweet potato and squish with the back of a fork. Fry for around 10 minutes - I like to get a little colour into them to add a caramelised flavour. Throw in the herbs and season to taste.

There, reaaaaally tasty, gluten free of course, and rather good with fish. And cabbage.

Blimey, I knew we ate a lot of sweet potatoes, but that's a heck of a lot of recipes. Hmmm... wonder if you can overdose on beta-carotene... ;)
