  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Line two baking trays with paper and set them aside.
  3. Cut the sweet potato into 2cm thick rounds, then cut a grid shape on the top of each one – being careful to only cut the top and not all the way through. Then place them on the prepared baking trays.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil and herbs together, then brush onto the tops of the sweet potato and place them in the oven to cook for 25-35 minutes, or until just soft in the center and crunchy on the top. You can flip the sweet potatoes halfway through cooking to ensure both sides are golden once cooked.
  5. Once cooked, place them onto a serving board or platter and top each one with pesto and a sprinkle of Chilli Salt. Enjoy the beautiful pop of herby flavours, zesty pesto, and a burst of chilli!
