Baked Sweet Potatoes with Toasted Hazelnuts


What you’ll need…

4 small sweet potatoes

2 tsp olive oil

½ cup SUNBEAM Hazelnuts, roughly chopped

1 tsp SUNBEAM Sesame Seeds

½ tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp picked thyme leaves

¼ tsp finely grated lemon rind

40g feta, crumbled

Lemon juice, additional oil and harissa, for serving


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  2. Rub sweet potatoes in half the olive oil and place onto baking tray. Roast for approx. 45 minutes or until just cooked all the way through.
  3. Heat remaining oil in a small fryingpan. Add hazelnuts and cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden. Add sesame seeds, cumin and thyme. Cook a further 1-2 minutes, remove from heat and stir in the lemon rind, season well.
  4. For serving, cut down the centre of each sweet potato and push out to make a small cavity. Top each with the hazelnut mixture, crumble over the feta and drizzle with lemon juice, additional oil and the harissa.
