About this Recipe

By: HempNut Cookbook

This dish is good for any occasion. The ingredients are healthy – and with the curried hempseed – makes for a yummy side dish.


  • 3 to 4 garnet or jewel sweet potatoes, cut into large chunks
  • 6 to 8 dried apricots, cut in half
  • Hemp seed oil
  • 4 to 6 teaspoons grated zest of 2 fresh lemons
  • a sprinkle of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 cup shelled hempseed
  • 2 to 3 sprigs fresh parsley, minced
sweet potatoes

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375° F. Arrange the sweet potatoes and apricots in a single layer in a large baking dish.

Step 2

Drizzle generously with hemp seed oil, sprinkle with the lemon zest and salt. Cover tightly and bake for 45 minutes. 

Step 3

Uncover and return to the oven for 7 to 10 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are lightly browned.

Step 4

While the potatoes roast, place the curry powder in a dry skillet over medium heat. Dry roast the curry powder for 1 to 2 minutes.

Step 5

Reduce the heat to low and stir in the hempseed. Toast, stirring constantly, until the curry powder turns from orange to a vivid yellow; it will return to a lovely orange color as it cools.

Step 6

To serve, sprinkle the cooked sweet potatoes with the curried hempseed and fresh parsley.


The curried hempseed condiment may be made in advance. Transfer it to a glass jar and let it cool completely before sealing. It will keep for 1 to 2 weeks stored at room temperature.
