Crispy Sweet Potatoes topped with a Horseradish Yogurt Sauce and Green Onions
This is a dish I had at Momofuku in Las Vegas, one of my favorite restaurants in the world. The Pork Buns are a must eat. This dish from Momofuku uses what I guess to be deep fried sweet potatoes and creme fraiche instead of yogurt. I didn’t want to deep fry them though and I’m not pretentious enough to keep creme fraiche in my fridge so I improvised.
1 (250g) sweet potato
2 tbsp (30g) non fat Greek yogurt
1/2 tsp (3g) horseradish
1/2 tsp (3g) lemon juice
1/4-1/2 tsp (2-3g) water
1-2 green onions
1 tbsp (15g) olive oil
1. Preheat your oven to 425F.
2. Cut potato into a medium dice. No need to peel it.
3. Pour half of oil in a pan, put in the potatoes and drizzle the remaining oil over top. Season with salt.
4. Bake 15 minutes or until soft.
5. Transfer pan from the oven to the stove & cook over medium-medium high heat until browning is achieved. Stir the potatoes as needed.
6. Mix the yogurt, horseradish, lemon juice, & ~0.5g of salt together. Thin it out with a touch of water.
7. Chop your onions.
8. Top potatoes with sauce, onions & sprinkle a pinch of seasoned salt over the top. Nutrition information is for the whole dish.
❓What is I don’t have cast iron?
❗️Then find something that can go in the oven & something that can go on the stove. Once it has finished in the oven transfer it from one dish to the other. Or you can boil the potatoes instead of roasting.
❓What if I don’t like horseradish?
❗️Then see yourself out. Bye.
❓My sauce is really thick.
❗️Thin it out with water. Just go slowly. The sauce doesn’t need measured at all. Just add a bigger amount of yogurt than horseradish, a splash of lemon juice and salt it to taste. It will be fine. The only reason I put measurements on this are because I know some of you can’t handle that.
❓I don’t like onions.
❗️Well these are green onions and that is a completely different flavor. Obviously you can leave them out but I dont recommend it because it really adds nice color and they add a layer of flavor to take it up a level
