I'm very sorry about the misleading title that possibly got me some curious clicks, but no, the cherry blossoms weren't in the potatoes. However it turns out that at least some cherry blossoms are edible. I didn't know that before! The reason for the title is rather that we are having a wonderful sakura, cherry blossom, season in Copenhagen and have been able to admire those beautiful blooming trees for a couple of weeks now. I just wanted to share a couple of photos of them.
This vegan dish on the contrary might not look too nice, but I can assure you that it was quite tasty. I only very recently made my first stuffed sweet potatoes, and thought that they were quite nice. And this second attempt was made with the lovely purple sweet potatoes that I can now get from my local market.
I stuffed these purple sweet potatoes with green lentils, green heirloom tomatoes, carrot, onion and garlic, but only the sky is limit what could be put into these.
The benefit is that sweet potato roasts much quicker than a normal one, so this is also more convenient dish to make regarding the waiting time. It's also nice change to have the sweetness as contrast with a savoury filling. But I still have to say that nothing can beat a “real” spud. Anyway, it's nice to have some change every now and again. What do you think of sakuras and spuds?
