Recipe by forager and chef @themedicinecircle 


1 Large Sweet Potato, sliced thin but not all the way through 

1 Tbsp Olive Oil for Roasting the potato

1/8 + 2 Tbsp Olive Oil for the Sauce

1/8 C Walnuts

1 Tbsp Preserved Lemon OR substitute 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice, 1 Tsp Grated Rind, 1/4 tsp salt 

1/4 C. Parsley Leaves

1/4 C. Dandelion Leaves 

2 Tbsp. Nettle Leaves (blanched) or Violet Leaves (optional)

1 Tbsp. Liver Vitality 

2 Tbsps Lemon Juice & Grated Rind

Salt to Taste

Optional: 1/4 Tsp Sumac Powder 

Generous pinch of cayenne/red chili 


Preheat the oven to 425F.

Cut your large sweet potato in a Hasselback style by carefully slicing across the potato skin-on, but not all the way through, so that it stays whole but has many slices.

Place the sweet potato in an oven-safe dish, & drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with a little salt. 

Leave uncovered, and bake for about 45 minutes. It should be lightly crispy skin. 

In a food processor, add the olive oil and preserved lemon and blend well.

Add in the walnuts, greens, & all other ingredients and pulse lightly until the consistency is smooth, but still textured.

Spoon mixture on top of the potato while it’s hot & eat right away. Save any leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer to add to toast or pasta.
