I am just obsessed with SWEET POTATOES! In fact, I incorporate it in my meal plans as a go to good carb for my clients. The yams have saved my yams by helping to satisfy my sugar cravings.
Not only can this veggie appease the sweet tooth, but it can also accommodate the savory flava, as well! Here are different ways you can slay your sweet potato.
First, reheat oven to 400 degrees. Pierce 4 medium sweet potatoes (2 1/2 to 3 pounds) several times with a fork; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until tender, 45 to 60 minutes. With a paring knife, cut an X in the top of each potato, and spread open. Add desired toppings immediately. Witness the slayage below.
BASIC SLAY: A dot of butter, sea salt, and pepper to taste.
FRENCH SLAY: Crumbled bleu cheese with toasted pecans. I know it sounds interesting but try it!
ALL AMERICAN SLAY: Dollop of sour cream, chopped chives, choice of bacon. I do not eat meat so I would suggest trying Morning Star breakfast Strips. It will certainly POP!!!
IRIS'S SWEET SLAY: Dollop of vegan butter, sliced almonds, coconut flakes, lightly drizzled with agave.
Try these out and let me know what you think!
