Ingredients

  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup tahini paste 
  • Kosher salt
  • Golden Raisin-Almond-Mint Relish, recipe follows
Golden Raisin-Almond-Mint Relish:
  • 1/4 cup roasted almonds, chopped
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped preserved lemon rind
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves 
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chile flakes, optional 
  • Kosher salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Roast the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet until fork tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Halve the sweet potatoes and scoop out the flesh into a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher until there are no visible chunks. (You can also put the potatoes through a potato ricer.) Add the tahini paste and fold with a rubber spatula until well combined. Season with kosher salt.

To assemble: Scoop the sweet potato mixture into a serving bowl and even out the surface with the back of a spoon while creating little rivulets. Spoon the Golden Raisin-Almond-Mint Relish on top, letting the olive oil run in the rivulets.

Golden Raisin-Almond-Mint Relish:

In a medium bowl, combine the almonds, raisins and preserved lemon. Tear the mint leaves into the bowl. Finish with the oil, chile flakes, if using, and salt to taste.
