Simple Alternative Sweet Potato Recipe

Sweet potatoes are brilliant. They are a great carbohydrate source and are very high in fibre which makes them an all round super food. They taste great and can be cooked in many different ways. I used to eat baked sweet potatoes a lot, and they were great to begin with…. but quickly became quite boring to eat in this way. I ‘discovered’ this quick and easy recipe when I was experimenting with some cooking. It really is simple so please do not expect any expert cooking skills… it does taste great though! This simple alternative sweet potato recipe goes great with anything. Chicken, veg, venison grill steaks – you name it.
