Sticky Gochujang Sweet Potatoes with Spring Onions & Coriander Yoghurt

March 28

The contrast of the sweet potato flesh works wonderfully with the sticky dark heat of the Korean chilli paste. For an extra flourish, put your finely sliced spring onions into a bowl of cold water with a few ice cubes, this will make them turn all curly and stay extra crunchy.
