A great make-ahead side dish for Christmas dinner. Served at room temp, with a sweet mustard and maple syrup dressing. As yet untested, from Super Food Ideas Christmas Special, Dec 2006. NB Australian measurements: 1 cup = 250ml

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 220C (430F). Spread hazelnuts on a baking tray and roast for 10-15 minutes or until skins crack. Wrap nuts in a clean teatowel and rub to remove skins. Chop and set aside.
  2. Line a large roasting pan with non-stick baking paper. Arrange sweet potato in a single layer, spray with oil and turn to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast sweet potato, turning once, until golden and tender (15-20 minutes). Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  4. Dressing: place oil, vinegar, mustard and maple syrup in a screw-top jar. Season with salt and pepper. Secure lid and shake well to combine.
  5. Place sweet potato and hazelnuts in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing and toss to combine. Serve.
