Easy

Check out this vegan chestnut, squash and sweet potato loaf recipe. Precise layering makes this vegan main look really smart, but it’s actually easy to put together. This can be made the day before then heated through before serving

 

Ingredients

  • onions 3 large, grated
  • coconut butter 100g
  • dried chilli flakes a pinch
  • sage a small bunch, chopped
  • vac-packed cooked, peeled chestnuts 180g, chopped

 

 

  • white breadcrumbs 100g
  • ready-to-eat dried apricots 50g, chopped
  • cranberry sauce 4 tbsp
  • sweet potatoes 400g, peeled
  • butternut squash 400g, peeled

Method

  • STEP 1 To make the stuffing, put the onion in a pan with the coconut butter and chilli flakes and cook until the onions have softened. Stir in the sage and cook for 2 minutes.

     
  • STEP 2 Put the chestnuts, breadcrumbs and apricots into a bowl. Stir in half the onion mixture, mix well and season. Mix the rest of the onions with the cranberry sauce.

     
     
  • STEP 3 Slice the sweet potatoes and squash separately in a food processor or with a mandoline and divide into 3 piles of each. Melt a little more coconut butter and brush the inside of a 900g/2lb loaf tin. Line with a strip of baking paper

     
     
  • STEP 4 Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Line the bottom of the tin with a neat overlapping layer of 1/3 of the squash, trimming to fit the tin. This will be the top of the loaf so get this as nice as possible – the other layers you don’t need to worry about so much. Then add a layer of 1/3 of the sweet potato.

     
     
  • STEP 5 Add a layer of stuffing, then cranberry onions, then the next 1/3 of squash and sweet potato. Add the rest of the stuffing, then another layer of cranberry onions and finish with the last 1/3 of squash and sweet potato.

     
     
  • STEP 6 Cover with foil, put on a baking tray and bake for 2 hours, or until the sweet potatoes and squash are tender. Leave to sit for 10 minutes before turning out and cutting into slices.

Kamote Turon or Lumpiang Kamote (fried sweet potato roll) is a famous and easy to prepare Filipino dessert (panghimagas) or snack (merienda).  

Kamote (sweet potato) is abundant in our place.  They grow anywhere even if you don’t tend them. I plant sweet potatoes with the help my my grandmother.   My grandmother has a green thumb she easily grows fruits and veggies.

When we were younger my cousins and I would help my grandmother plant and harvest sweet potato.   We made some of them into  Kamote Turon or Lumpiang Kamote. There are different versions of how to make Kamote Turon but for me this is the best recipe.

Sweet Potato Dog Chews

Sweet Potato Dog Chews

Dog TreatsI was in Petco just before Christmas looking for treats for my Siberian Husky, she loves treats!  I was shocked at how expensive dog treats have gotten.  I found a small bag of “all natural” sweet potato treats priced at $12.99, my dog loves sweet potatoes, but I wasn’t ready to fork over 13 bucks for a few pieces of dehydrated sweet potato when I could buy a whole bag of sweet potato for about $5.  I decided I could make my own dog chews so I got a bag of sweet potato from Walmart and headed home to make some.

 

 

It’s super easy to make.  The bag contained 6 fairly large sweet potatoes so I got a lot of chews for $5, I already had the other ingredients in my pantry.  I made enough chews to give out to our friends who own dogs.

You can freeze these treats, they last about 3-4 months.  My dog, Cannoli, loves them even frozen!

Ingredients:

6 large sweet potatoes

1/2 cup olive oil

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Dog treats

Directions:

1.  Scrub and dry sweet potatoes.

2.  Slice into 1/2 thick slices.  This is the hardest part!  I find cutting off a slice from one side then placing the cut side down makes slicing the potatoes easier.

3.  Place slices on parchment covered baking sheet.

4.  Mix cinnamon in olive oil.

5.  Brush both sides of potato slices with oil.

6.  Bake in 275 degree oven for 2-3 hours.

7.  Remove from oven and cool.

8.  Store in air tight containers in the fridge.  For longer storage freeze in freezer safe bags for up to 4 months.

Raw sweet potatoes are pretty hard and can be difficult to slice.  I find cutting off a slice from one side then placing the cut side down makes slicing the potatoes easier.
