Sweet potatoes are known for Thanksgiving side dishes and as a delicious french fry alternative. Luckily, this tasty root vegetable is also loaded with vitamin A and fiber and when they're not topped with marshmallows and loads of butter, are a good-for-you veggie to fill your plate with.
Our friends at Flex It Pink have a mouthwatering way to enjoy the benefits of sweet potatoes and satisfy your sweet tooth:
– Heat up sweet potatoes in plastic bag with a little water in microwave (steam them) until soft
– Cut in half and slice it up with a knife and use a small amount of butter or butter spray on top
– Drizzle honey, sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar on top
– Lightly mash up potato so mixture mixes into middle, then add a little more brown sugar on top
