After seeing Evan’s simple sweet potato recipe at The Wannabe Chef, I just had to give it a try. I prepared them exactly as his recipe says, except I added a touch of cinnamon on top. I love putting a dash of cinnamon on baked things, the smell can linger up to a whole day!
- 1 sweet potato
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- sea salt
Directions: Slice the sweet potato into 1/2 to 1/4 inch slices and spread them out into a single layer on a baking tin, spread olive oil on top and sprinkle a dash of cinnamon to finish. Bake at 375F for about 1 hour.
I served the sweet potatoes with a three nut spinach. I chopped up some raw cashews and almonds, and also added some lightly salted pumpkin seeds.
I added the spinach, nuts, garlic powder, chili powder, and olive oil to a large pot and cooked for 10 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
I love simple, fast, and delicious side dishes and this hit on all three. The crunchiness and the saltiness of the pumpkin seeds were a really nice touch.
I really want to become a more inventive chef… Actually I take that back, there is no way in hell I can even come close to calling myself a “chef”. I want to become a more inventive “cook”, but dang is meat expensive. Lamb?! Every time I go to the grocery store and take a look at the lamb, each package is at least over $15. Any suggestions for a cheaper cut? Maybe I need to stop being such a cheapskate, I will have a tax return coming, right?
