Sweet Potato, Pak Choi and Feta Salad

This salad has become a firm favourite for us, even managing to convince dad that he does in fact like sweet potatoes after all so that’s a pretty good sign!⁣

Serves 6:⁣
✔️ 1.25kg small sweet potatoes, peeled and cut in to 8 equal sized wedges⁣
✔️ 3 tbsp olive oil⁣
✔️ 1 tsp smoked paprika ⁣
✔️ 2 small pak Choi⁣
✔️ 100g feta, crumbled⁣
✔️ handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped⁣
✔️ 1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted ⁣

Dressing:⁣
✔️ 2 tsp finely grated fresh root ginger ⁣
✔️ 1 small garlic clove, crushed⁣
✔️ 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped⁣
✔️ 2 tbsp light soy sauce⁣
✔️ 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil⁣
✔️ 3 tbsp groundnut oil ⁣

Heat the oven to 200°C / 180°C fan.⁣

Coat the sweet potato wedges with oil and season generously with salt. Heat a griddle pan until smoking hot, then give the slices of sweet potato 3 to 4 minutes to char before turning them over and griddle the other side.⁣

Allow to cool slightly then place the wedges on a lined baking tray, sprinkle over the smoked paprika and cook for 10 to 15 minutes until they are soft and cooked through.⁣

Finely slice the pak choi leaves and put in to a large mixing bowl with the warm sweet potato, feta and chopped coriander. Mix the dressing ingredients together and pour into the bowl, mixing gently together. ⁣

Transfer to a large serving platter, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and enjoy.
