    Love the concept of your blog – such a clear niche. Love sweet potatoes but not a fan of walnuts at all

    • Maria Kelly
      October 21, 2017 / 12:43 pm

      Thank you so much Kate! You could always switch the walnuts for almonds or pistachios..? x

      I’m so pleased Jenny! Typically there is a lot more oil in a pesto, but I prefer using less – you could always use a bit more if you prefer. Enjoy! x

      It’s a great recipe to have ‘up your sleeve’ because you can have it by itself – serve it with a portion of meat – and it can be served hot or cold. I hope you enjoy it! x

      Wedges are better than sweet potato fries, I think, because they hold their shape. With fries they are either too soggy or you need to coat them to crisp them up. Wedges are a lot easier! x

  19. October 25, 2017 / 10:27 am

    Wow! I will definitely try this recipe. At first I didn’t imagine i could eat sweet potatos this way unil i have tasted it by accident in Thailand and i fell in love with it

    • Maria Kelly
      October 25, 2017 / 11:13 am

      Oh that’s interesting they had sweet potato dishes in Thailand. They are delish, aren’t they!? x

    I spent my entire childhood avoiding sweet potatoes like the plague, but as an adult, I can’t get enough of them. I’ve tried them with pecans, but never with walnuts. I guess I’ll have to try these out.

    • Maria Kelly
      October 26, 2017 / 5:15 pm

      Oh I’ve never had them with pecans – we should do a swap!! x
