    1. 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

    1. 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

    1. Thank you! I’m really into walnuts at the moment – they are so good for you. They work brilliantly in salsa verdi – so glad you are going to give it a go! x

  1. wow this look cooked to perfection! I love salsa verde on everything, I never thought about adding it to my potato wedges! I will veganize this recipe, give it a go and let you know! Hugs!

    1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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.

    1. Haha! When I was pregnant with my daughter I was obsessed with iced buns. Never had one since – but my daughter looooves them! Weird, right?! haha x

  4. This looks delicious and I LOVE sweet potato! Apologies for the late comment, holidays got in the way, better late than never! Thanks for linking up to #TriumphantTales, hope to see you on Tuesday!
