I was working over the weekend, all day Saturday and for a few hours today. Yesterday on the way home I was feeling slightly lazy, so I stopped for a pizza and a glass of wine. The pizza was rather large and today the contemplation of all the carbs and the calories in the aforementioned pizza send me scuttling home to cook for myself. I love simple recipes; this is a Jill Dupliex one, for chorizo with sweet potatoes, I came across a couple of years ago. The quantities given will feed four people.
Roast sweet potatoes with chorizo
6 sweet potatoes
2 tbsp of olive oil
Sea salt and pepper
2 chorizo sausages, thickly sliced
1 orange, quartered
100g feta cheese crumbled
Heat the oven to 200C. Scrub the sweet potatoes and cut into wedges. Toss in the olive oil. Place them on a roasting tray and bake for 20 – 25 minutes.
Add the chorizo and the orange quarters and bake for a further 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn everything over with a spoon to coat the potatoes with the chorizo juice. Pile the sweet potatoes and the chorizo onto serving plates and scatter with the crumbled feta. Season to taste (I omit salt as the feta is quite salty). Squeeze the juice from the warm orange pieces over the top and serve.
