orange sweet potato (kumara)
- Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Combine garlic, thyme, oregano and spread in a small bowl. Season.
- Using a sharp knife, cut each potato crosswise into 3mm slices, cutting three-quarters of the way through (being careful not to cut all the way through so potatoes stay intact – see notes).
- Place potatoes on prepared tray. Smear two-thirds of spread mixture over cut sides of potatoes. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden and tender. Serve topped with remaining spread mixture and oregano leaves.
TIP: To slice potatoes without cutting all the way through, place a thick skewer on either side and slice down until knife hits the skewer.
