Kumara

Aside from mash or roast can you do anything special with it!
I was hoping for a special sided dish featuring hot kumara.
Not with orange or anything like that - more a mushroom or cream and garlic combo.
Have you a good recipe like that!

I have an apple and kumara dish on the stove right now.2 Royal Gala apple, 2 cooked kumara, salt and pepper, 50g butter, all cooking gently for about 20 minutes then will be crushed and served with a slow roasted pork belly and some silver beet.

Kumara plus apple or plum is a very good combination.

It was fabulous.The kumara and apple combination is a real winner, and the Freedom Farms pork belly cooked with onions, garlic, beer and herbs was perfect.

Hi this is delish: Sweet Potato Gratin:(serves 4-6).6 med sweet potato, 5Tchopped sage, 6 garlic cloves crushed, 2T sea salt, 1/2t ground black pepper, 250ml cream (hence special occasions).Cut washed & unpeeled sweet potatoes into 5mm discs.Mix with sage, garlic, salt and pepper. Arrange in deep dish by packing them tightly almost standing them so you get parallel lines across width or length of dish. Cover with foil, oven 200c for 45 mins. Then pour over cream and roast another 25mins uncovered.From my favourite cookbook 'Ottolenghi'

Treat it as you would any other root vege. I like them baked sometimes.

You can use whatever mix of veges you like in this recipe. I use sometimes use courgete or pumpkin instead of the eggplant andcooked add chickpeas. You can also increase or decrease the amount of chilli flakes used.

Eggplant, Kumera and Butter Bean Curry
1 cup each sliced eggplant & cubed kumera
1 cup sliced butter beans - can use green beans instead
2 cl garlic chopped
1/2 teasp each cumin seeds, cumin powder, turmeric powder, ground coriander,1/2 curry powder

1 teasp salt
1/2 cup stock

1/2 -1 cup coconut cream
chopped fresh coiander and oil for cooking
Saute spices in roil until aromatic. Add chopped veges and cook 5 minutes. Adstock & salt and cook until veges are cooked through. Add spinach and stir then add coconut cream 1/2 cup at a time and stir until thickened. Add coriander before serving.
