  • 1 tablespoon of molasses, honey, or syrup
  • 1 large sweet potato (orange in color) that has been cooked for 3 minutes to make it soft and cut into a roughly rectangular shape

Preparation method

This process takes about 40 minutes.

  1. To prepare the rolls, drizzle some olive oil over the rolls and top them with mozzarella. Place these rolls in an oven tray lined with baking paper, and then put them under the grill for 8 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. To prepare the caramelised onions, add garlic, tomato passata, soy sauce, and olive oil in a cooking pot and allow the mixture to boil over medium heat. Add onions, pepper, salt, and molasses to the boiling ingredients, and then fry them until they become sticky. Do not make this mixture too saucy to prevent the rolls from becoming soggy.
  3. To prepare the Boerewors, add oil to the cooking pan and then add 1/3 a cup of water and place the pan over high heat. Add the Boerewors and cover them completely by water and then let them boil. When the water evaporates, fry the Boerewors for 5 minutes on either side so that they do not dry while frying.
  4. To prepare the sweet potato chips, begin by preheating the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Line the oven tray with baking paper, and then spread the chips evenly. Scatter some cayenne pepper on the chips and drizzle some olive oil over them as well. Bake the chips for 20 minutes until they become crispy on the outside.


Take a clean plate and place the roll. Put the spinach leaves, avocado, and cucumber on the roll, followed by the Boerewors. Top the combination with the caramelised onion and serve the sweet potato chips on the side of the plate.
