Ingredients :

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 babygem lettuce leaves
  • Handful of fresh coriander leaves

Salsa:

  • 1/2 fresh pineapple, cubed
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes (or as much as you dare!)

  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard (optional)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed (optional)

Method:

  • Bake potatoes in the oven until cooked (depends on size but usually a little over an hour)
  • Make salsa :

– Caramelise the pineapple in a frying pan. Preferably without oil but can use a small                 amount of coconut or extra virgin olive oil if desired

– Add caramelised pineapple to a bowl and mix with all other salsa ingredients

– Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary

  • Make vegan Mayo :

– Put all ingredients except the oil in a food processor

– Continue to whizz until emulsified

– Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary

  • Remove skins from the baked potatoes, season them with a little salt and serve with the baby gem lettuce, salsa and Mayo
