Sweet Potato Buns (Breadless Buns)

I’ll admit that this is one of my less exciting recipes, but I thought the theory behind it was too good not to share. I pinched this idea from Pinterest but made up my own recipe. These are essentially roasted sweet potato slices which can be used as a much lighter, much healthier, replacement for burger buns, or indeed any type of hot bread sandwich. 

To me, sweet potatoes have to be paired with spice; a little sultry cumin with a dash of fiery chilli, so, for this recipe, you will need:

1 large sweet potato – the girth of which will determine how many of these one potato will make

1/2 tsp ground cumin

Pinch chilli powder

Salt and pepper

Drizzle of your favourite roasting oil (I tend to use olive)

1. Preheat the oven to about 190C fan.

2. Cover a baking tray in tin foil and drizzle in the oil. Once the oven is hot enough, pop it in to heat until the oil is starting to smoke.

3. Cut two disks from the central of your sweet potato. Sprinkle on the spice and seasoning. Add to the oil and bake for around 25 minutes, or until golden on the outside and soft in the middle.
