Sweet Potatoes

Recommended Posts

I have a sweet potato lying around. I fried cut up sweet potato pieces in olive oil (with some seasonings); I hated it. I had some kind of mashed sweet potato dish one Thanksgiving. Hated that too. However, knowing how veggies are, it may be that I can do something such that the sweet potato doesn't have its "default" flavor (like tomatoes in salsa, say), if that makes sense. But what that would entail, I'm not sure. Anyone have ideas? It's not like I'm super invested in trying to like sweet potatoes; I just want to give things a proper chance.


Docs said it was depression, which was in my case code for, "It's all in your head."

I replied (in my head, alas) with expletives that I don't think are allowed on here. xD

Self-dx'd Celiac just beginning my very bumpy gluten-free journey. My healing process is looking a lot like my deterioration was (rather non-linear)...

Praise be unto the (gluten-free, vegan) Flying Spaghetti Monster for the folks who worked so hard to raise awareness (and Internet to access it)! Y'all saved me decades of suffering most likely. :D

I do the fried sweet potato and a little salt and a lot of cinnamon. I am not a huge plain sweet potato fan but imlike them this way.

You can cut them into thin sticks like french fries, toss with oil to coat and sprinkle with salt, cinnamon and chipotle pepper. Then roast them in the oven on a baking sheet at a high temperature, turning once or twice so they're nice and brown. You can play around with the seasonings. Sometimes I do mine with just salt and then drizzle balsamic vinegar over them when they're done.

Maybe turn it into a soup? That's my mom's favorite way to eat sweet potatoes.

wow.. i dont know what to tell u- cause i LOVE sweet potatoes... and you frying them up in olive oil and spices was making me drool... i prefer my sweet potatoes salty & savory.. as opposed to the sugar and cinnamon...

im actually going to make russian potato salad in next day or two- using sweet potatoes INSTEAD of regular (as i avoid reg. potatoes)... the ingredients are (cold cooked sweet potatoes, cucumber, hard boiled eggs, green onions, mayo). YUM :P

i also love sauteeing them with onions, and melting mozzarella cheese on them, or mashing them with lots of salty butter, cream & mozzarella cheese.

my friends & i make a shephards pie- using mashed sweet potatoes instead of regular... and we top it with mozzarella cheese YUM

I know what to make you if you ever come over! :P It was something that hinted at being good and then quickly became ewww-tastic to me, which is why I'm so quick to believe it's something I'd like prepared another way. Definitely trying the cinnamon. Maybe embracing the "sweet" is what'll make the difference.
