Nutty Sweet Potato May 18, 2010

Nutty Sweet Potato

Jamie says:  I came up with a new sweet potato recipe- the nutty sweet potato!  I love the combination of sweet and salty, so I added sugar and nuts. 

Here’s my recipe: Put a washed sweet potato in an aluminum foil “boat.”  Add water to the bottom of the “boat” and pinch closed.  Bake for at least one hour at about 375 degrees Farenheit or until soft.  (If it is not done and you don’t want to wait anymore, try microwaving it for a few minutes.)  Cut sweet potato in half and add Smart Balance Omega 3 Buttery Spread, sugar, cinnamon, and dry roasted lightly salted peanuts on top. 

The nuts add some protein and a nice crunch.  Delish! 

Nutrition note:  Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A (from beta carotene), vitamin C, and fiber.  Eat the skin for an extra fiber boost.
