Before you start

Preheat the oven to 200℃ | 2 wooden spoons | Mixing bowl | Small mixing bowl | Tin foil | Baking tray | Powerful blender

Prepare the potatoes

  • Take 2 wooden spoons and lay them next to each to each other to form rails
  • Put a sweet potato on top of the rails and use a sharp knife to slice it, very thinly (almost as thin as thick potato chips - be careful not to cut all the way through the sweet potatoes - they need to remain whole)
  • Put the potatoes in a bowl of water and soak them for 10 minutes (this will help the cooking process)

Coat and bake the potatoes

  • Put all the peri peri ingredients in a small mixing bowl and mix them together
  • Place the potatoes on single squares of tin foil, drizzle them with a little bit of olive oil, cover them with the peri peri spice mix (making sure the mix gets in between the slices of potato)
  • Put the potato parcels on a baking tray and bake them for 45-50 minutes (take them out of the oven and open the parcels for the final 10 minutes)

Make the avocado aoili

  • Put all the Avocado Aioli ingredients in the liquidiser and whizz them up into a thick, green cream

Finish and serve

  • Take the potatoes out of the oven, serve them on nests of rocket
  • Drizzle over the avocado aioli and sprinkle over the pomegranate and red chilli seeds
