If you use a hand blender you need to chop the herbs into small pieces first, and then mix them together. Without using any kitchen utensils, chop the herbs and garlic clove, and mix everything with a whisk. If the dip is too thick, add a little more water little by little. Season the dip with salt, pepper, and more lime juice.
  5. Decorate the sweet potatoes with sesame seeds and serve with the dip.
