Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Potato and Bocconcini Skewers

1 large sweet potato cut into large chunks
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 tsp of dried chili flakes
1 tbs of Coriander seed
1/2 tsp of sea salt
840 grams bocconcini
1/2 cup pesto

Recipe Directions for Sweet Potato and Bocconcini Skewers

  1. If you are using large mozzarella balls, then cut them into bite-sized pieces and marinate them in the pesto for at least 1 hour. If each bocconcini is large, then cut in half. If you're using little bocconcini balls, they are small enough and so not need cutting so just marinate them as they are.

  2. Pre-heat the oven to 375F (190C).

  3. Place the sweet potato chunks in a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 35-40 minutes or until firm but tender.

  4. Remove from oven and cool. Once cooled, cut the sweet potato into 1 inch (2cm) cubes.

  5. Using a mortar and pestle, grind together the chili flakes, cilantro seeds and salt until the ingredients are quote fine.

  6. Press down one side of the sweet potato into the spice mix and then first skewer on a piece of pesto mozzarella followed by a piece of spiced sweet potato. Repeat process.
