My Table Talk guest tonight, Lehee Lev of Whole Self Fitness and Living Centre, is a self-professed sweet potato fanatic. So I’ve put together a menu that showcases the flavours and versatility of this healthy local veggie.
Organic local sweet potatoes and carrots with a choice of chicken or oyster mushrooms, in a rich coconut Thai red curry, infused with lemongrass, ginger and shallots, topped with fragrant fresh herbs, crispy fried onions and a fat lime wedge. Served with steamed jasmine rice and a tangy, spicy “som tam”-style salad of green papaya or mango, crunchy raw sweet potato, long beans, cherry tomatoes, chiles, and roasted peanuts (optional) in a tamarind dressing.
