4 medium sweet potatoes 

1/3 cup Parmesan cheese

Roasted Sweet Potato Surfboards


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degree Celsius 
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes. Using a mandolin (it’s more difficult to cut by hand) slice the potatoes into 2-3mm slices (lengthways), so they look like surfboards
  3. Using a sharp knife, cut vertical lines (approximately 3mm apart down the sweet potatoes. Repeat this and cut the lines horizontally. This will create a grid effect and helps all the marinade, seep into the slits. Be careful not to cut through the sweet potatoes. 
  4. You can repeat this process on the other side (optional)
  5. Melt the butter, crush the garlic and chop the herbs. In a large tray, add the olive oil, melted butter, salt, pepper, Parmesan, and herbs. 
  6. Add the sweet potatoes in and with your hands massage all the mixture over the surfaces.
  7. Lay the sweet potatoes flat in the tray, trying not to overlap the pieces. 
  8. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until crisp and golden. 
  9. Serve with an extra sprinkle of sea salt flakes.
