Spicy Sweet Potatoes!

I love sweet potatoes. Before I started eating clean, I had no interest in them, but they have become one of my favourite carbs to enjoy with my meals. And as a result, they have made their way not only into my every day diet, but to my holiday meals!

This recipe is one of the most delicious, indulgent-tasting holiday foods I have made to date, and I serve them as often as possible, to incredible rave reviews!

Spicy Sweet Potatoes

  • 1-3 Sweet Potatoes, depending on the size.
  • 1/2 tbsp Ginger
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 – 1 tbsp Cayenne, depending on your spice tolerance.
  • 1 handful crushed walnuts (if desired)
Directions
  • Peel and slice the sweet potato into discs approximately one half inch to one inch thick
  • Boil for approximately 20 minutes, until they are soft enough to be pierced through with a fork, without force.
  • Drain and mash, add your spices. If needed, add a small amount of water to help the mashing process.
  • Add crushed walnuts for presentation.
  • Enjoy!!

    Are sweet potatoes “better” than their non-sweet cousins?

      Absolutely, Ron! Though they may be roughly the same in terms of their carbohydrate content, sweet potatoes have a lower glycemic index (less blood sugar spikes), they have more fibre, and are rich in vitamins (Vitamin A, Vitamin C and several minerals). Plus you are much less likely to find them in processed form, so they tend to be served more natural!

    I love sweet potatoes. I normally eat them as pie during the holidays (I am black..don’t eat pumpkin pie..LOL) and I love anything that allows me to add some spice to it. I am book marking this post. Thanks girl!
