Try this as a dessert, sweet snack, or – if you’re anything like me – breakfast.
If you don’t know why sweet potatoes are essential for everyone from vegans to meat-eaters, you’ve got to read my previous post.
By the way, this is the perfect vegan ( and certainly more pure ) substitute for this:
Cut up a sweet potato from left to right
Then cut some of the discs in half
Throw in an oven-safe glass dish
Pour olive oil over, leaving a good layer at the bottom
Sprinkle with brown sugar, to taste ( 3 spoonfuls is plenty )
Turn an oven on to 350ºF / 177ºC
Plop it in, walk away for up to an hour
Remove and serve
Use the remaining sauce to intensify, or just save it
Of course, you can accommodate this single-serving recipe for more people!
It might not be the shining beacon of healthy plant-based food, but if it helps you get your daily sweet potato…I’m all for it.
