Baked Sweet Potato with Almond, Parmesan and Sage Crumble (gluten free)

This is an old recipe that was in need of an update. I love sage butter, especially mixed with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. So I thought of making a savory crumble to top some baked sweet potatoes. I used almond meal instead of normal flour and it was delicious. It’s super easy to make. You can have it as a side for thanksgiving or friends-giving. This recipe makes enough crumble for 5 sweet potatoes but you can always double it.

Ingredients:

5 medium sweet potatoes, roasted

1 cup of almond meal

60gr of grated Parmesan cheese

13 fresh sage leaves, chopped

4 tablespoons of butter, cold

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste

Cayenne to taste

Extra:

A few sage leaves

Vegetable oil for frying the leaves

 

First bake the sweet potatoes in the oven at 180C/350F until tender, about 1 hour.

Once the sweet potatoes are cooked, cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise but not all the way to the bottom. Try to make a pocket for the crumble.

To make the crumble, just mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, using your fingers or a fork. You want the texture to resemble breadcrumbs.

Spoon the crumble on top of the sweet potato and broil until it becomes golden. To serve, you can sprinkle some thinly sliced sage or a few fried sage leaves. To fry the leaves, just heat about 1/2 cup of vegetable oil in a small pan. Once it is hot, fry the sage leaves for about 3-5 seconds. Then transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels. Enjoy!
