Different Sweet Potatoes
Since sweet potatoes are in season (here in Spain) I tried a new recipe and it was tasty - not your typical sweet potatoe sugary recipe.
2 large sweet potatoes. (peel and cut into 1/2 inch cubes). Place in a baking dish.
Make a simple balsamic vinaigrette: 2 Tbsp. balsamic or plain vinegar. Add 1 tsp. brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. minced garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well and add virgin olive oil (3 to 4 Tbsp.).
Drizzle over the sweet potatoes and toss to coat. Bake for 25 to 30 min. or till tender. (I pulled them out at after about 15 min. and stirred them.) Cool slightly and transfer to a bowl. Check for salt, and if you need to have the "sweet"-sweet potatoe taste, drizzle with some honey. Makes 2 servings. Interesting taste and I´d say not a lot of calories :) Enjoy. Joy
