Sweet Potatoes, Stir-Fried

This is an easy sweet potato recipe from the New York Times website.


4 scallions, trimmed and cut into oneinch pieces
2 garlic cloves
1 piece fresh ginger (an inch long), peeled
1 small fresh hot chili (like jalapeño or Thai), stem and seeds removed
1 ½ pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into one­ to two ­inch chunks
3 tablespoons peanut oil
freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon soy sauce, more for serving


Put scallions in food processor and pulse until finely chopped; remove. Add garlic, ginger and chili to the processor and pulse until minced; remove. Fit the processor with grating blade and grate sweet potatoes.
Put oil in a large nonstick or well­seasoned cast­iron skillet over medium­high heat. When hot, add garlic­ginger­chili mixture and fry for 30 seconds. Add half the scallions and all the potatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring or tossing, until the potatoes are lightly browned, about 10 minutes; the potatoes need not be fully tender
Add soy sauce, toss once, and transfer potatoes to serving platter. Garnish with remaining scallions and serve immediately with additional soy sauce, if desired.
