650g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite sized chunks

1 tbsp olive oil

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Large handful coriander, roughly chopped

4 tbsp plain flour

2 tbsp sesame seeds


1. Preheat oven to 200C Fan.

2. Place the sweet potatoes on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes until soft. Toss half way through to prevent them from burning.

4. Using your hands or two soup spoons, scoop the sweet potato into even sized balls onto a lined baking tray. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (you may want to press them down a little so they stick) and return to the oven at 200C for approx. 25 mins until golden and crisp.
