Market Makes: Purple Sweet Potatoes with Spicy Peanut Sauce


4 purple sweet potatoes 

¼ cup scallions, finely chopped 

¼ cup red onion, finely diced 

¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped 

¼ cup peanuts, crushed 


Red Curry Peanut Sauce 

1 cup canned light coconut milk 

1 tablespoon red curry paste

2 tablespoons all natural peanut butter 

½ tablespoon rice vinegar 

1 teaspoon sriracha 

pinch of sea salt 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment. Scrub the sweet potatoes and pierce a few times with a fork. Place on the baking sheet and roast for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest until they are cool enough to handle. Make a slit down the center to create a well. Pour a few spoonfuls of sauce onto each sweet potato and top with the scallions, onions, cilantro and peanuts. 

Peanut Sauce: Combine all of the ingredients in a small pan, whisk together over a low flame. Bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes until the sauce thickens.
