sweet potato with gremolata

Normally when i put a recipe up its one i take full credit for creating but like most recipes they are normally adapted from a similar recipe which is why i haven't put as many recipes online as I would of liked. so in order to overcome this I will now out my adapted recipes up with credit and links to the original.
This starts with today's recipe of which i got from this recipe from Tesco. As this week on the veg grower podcast seems to be sweet potato based it only seems fitting to include a recipe especially as this has been tonight's dinner for me.

6 small sweet potatoes (I used lots of small tubers which have been harvested this week for me)
75ml (3fl oz) extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (still growing in the garden)
1 garlic clove, crushed (harvested earlier this year)
The zest of 1 lemon (I added the juice too)
1 red chilli, seeded and chopped (I've used green as I picked from the garden in order to create this meal)
150g (5oz) soured cream or yogurt

  1. pre heat oven to gas mark 6 or 200c or 180c for fan assisted.
  2. pierce sweet potatoes several times and place on a tray in the oven for 45 minutes just like a baked potato.
    3.make the gremolata by combining the oil, parsley, garlic, lemon and chilli.
  3. cut slits in the sweet potatoes and split apart.
  4. spoon over the gremolata the top with sour cream or yogurt and serve.

i really enjoyed this dish it has a very fresh, zingy taste and was just so tasty and enjoyable. I shall certainly be making this dish again.
This makes a great and tasty party food or a simple side to meal that tastes great and is healthy but best of all most of the ingredients came from the plot.
So has anyone else tried this dish let me know what you thought of it.
