I love sweet potatoes. I eat them in so many different ways.
Recently we’ve been cutting them into very thin circles, covering them with turmeric, a bit of curry, Trader Joe’s 21 Salute (herb and spice mix), a few tablespoons of grape seed oil and baking for 45 to 60 minutes at 400 degrees. Sometimes we add purple, red or yellow potatoes into the mix. Occasionally we dip them in low fat sour cream, but they’re so delicious you don’t really need the dip.
I also love pureeing baked sweet potatoes with baked acorn squash, a butter substitute, a teaspoon of curry and a dash of cinnamon. If you don’t like curry just use turmeric for the health benefits. My mom emailed me this recipe she plans to bake today for her grandchildren:
