In an effort to liven up swede I came up with this little recipe, you could almost snack on it as a sweet treat! It tastes a little like those little ginger chews you get in the Asian supermarkets. It’s not too sweet however, so suitable to serve with main course too!
Ginger Maple Swede
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 inch/ 5g ginger minced or grated
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
coriander for garnish
Pre heat oven 180C.
Peel the swede, cut into 1 inch pieces. Steam in a pan with a little water & the lid on for 15 minutes.
Drain and transfer to a lined baking tray, coat with your oil and maple syrup. Roast for 15 minutes, until the swede begins to take on colour. Add your ginger and mix through well. Roast for another 10 minutes until the swede is nice and golden. Remove from the oven, mix with your sesame seeds and a pinch of salt.
Garnish with coriander for a little colour.
