Roasted Yacon with Feta, Chilli & Lime


500g yacon
1 garlic clove
1 lime
1 chilli
50g rocket
100g feta
Sea salt & freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Preheat your oven to 180C. Scrub the yacon and peel. Cut them into batons about the thickness of your finger and scatter onto a large roasting tin. Toss with 1 tbsp oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Slide the yacon into the oven and roast for 30 mins, turning halfway, till tender in the middle.

While the yacon is roasting, peel the garlic clove and finely grate it into a bowl. Grate in the lime zest and squeeze in the juice. Whisk in 1 tbsp oil and a little salt and pepper to form a dressing.
Slice the chilli thinly on the angle.
Transfer the cooked yacon onto plates. Scatter the rocket leaves over the top. Add crumbles of feta and slices of chilli to taste. Finish by spooning over the lime dressing.
