I adore sweet potatoes. They are wonderful simply baked, mashed up in a casserole, or, as in this recipe, roasted with lots of other yummy goodies.
It seems that many people only eat these wonderful gems during the holidays. I can’t figure this out. Yes, they always are on my holiday table, but I eat them year round.
They are loaded with tons of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They’re even low on the glycemic index! Most importantly to me, they are super delicious and don’t taste the least bit healthy!!!
