A drizzling of salty feta, tangy Greek yogurt and bright citrus gives loads of flavour to these sweet potato wedges. The almonds lend a satisfying crunch to the tender potatoes and creamy sauce, but feel free to omit them, if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes , peeled and cut in 3/4-inch thick wedges
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
