Jacket Roasted Sweet Potato
The Potting Shed in Sydney does simple modern pub food really well, with the idea that plates are to be shared with friends - aka tapas style. Something as simple as roasting sweet potato on rock salt creates a taste sensation that inspired my fellow 60-Day Challenge colleagues and myself to recapitulate the experience at home.
The bed of rock salt works similarly to a salt crust. By placing the root vegetable on top of the salt elevates the natural sweetness of the Sweet Potato to another level entirely.
