Peel the carrot. Cut thin strips of all vegetables with a slicer or carver. Keep carrot slices, courgettes and fennel in a bowl of cold water with ice.

In a blender, blend the basil leaves, olive and peanut oil and mustard, season with salt and pepper. The mixture should be smooth and stay green. (add a little cold water if the mixture is too thick)

Peel and cook the sweet potato in a pan of lightly salted cold water.
