If you haven’t figured it out already I’m a massive fan of the humble sweet potato!
We eat a lot of it around here too!
I have 4 vegetarian crew currently and a few curious cats who seem to be eating more and more veggies if they look like something they might like!
I’ve taken the sweet potato above and sliced it up and roasted in the oven with olive oil salt and pepper an called it toast…topped with sautéed mushrooms and onions with wilted spinach and topped with guc and my fav pomegranate seeds!
With these veggie sausage rolls the recipe is in a previous post, but just quickly I baked the sweet potato skin on till soft then mashed up with black beans, spinach onions etc rolled up in pastry and baked till golden! delicious!
This sweet potato bake with pesto was an idea that a very dear friend shared with me as we both share a mutual love to the sweet potato and if nothing else chat often about how we are enjoying them!
This is super simple in the way I just peeled the sweet potato, sliced them and laid them in a greased baking dish drizzled with olive oil and salt a pepper and baked in the oven for 45-60 mins till crunchy on top and soft inside then I dolloped some basil pesto over the top and there you have it!
This twice baked sweet potato even made an appearance at the boss’s table.
I baked the sweet potatoes whole then once soft sliced in half scooped out some of the filling and mixed with sautéed onions spinach drained chick peas, chopped parsley and some salt and pepper then placed it back in the sweet potato shell and topped with some cheese and placed a hot oven for 10 mins or until golden.
The green sauce is a avocado cream sauce, basically one avo minus the shell and see, 1/4 cup half and half, 1/4 cup olive oil, salt and pepper, juice of one lemon blended up well in a Nutri bullet or whatever kinda of whizz blender you have!!
So hopefully out of all that you can find a delicious way to enjoy that mighty sweet potato! The options really are endless.
Please share your ideas or how your enjoying your sweet potatoes.
