Sweet Potato Secrets
***use yams or sweet potatoes, i googled the differences and got lost reading about it, to me they taste the same!!!
Use real yams or sweet potatoes, it is a bit of a pain to have to peel and cube them yourself but the extra effort really makes a difference.
Toss in 2-3 tbsp of olive oil.
Sugar and spice to your liking. I think brown sugar is a must have ingredient for these to be delicious.
Bake at 425F, toss after 20 minutes, bake for another 15 minutes and test. I like to make them a bit softer so I usually cook them for about 40-45 minutes total.
Some of the spices I use:
A couple cloves of fresh garlic minced, or garlic powder (I’ve also used Clubhouse Garlic Plus seasoning which is a good mixture)
Fresh ground pepper
I find that “less is more” if you truly love the taste of vegetables (which I do) but I use more seasoning when I’m cooking for the boys or a group.
If you have any good flavour combos, let me know! Happy cooking :)
