Sweet potato never was a staple vegetable at our place until recently. We were introduced to this interesting and nutritious snack by a friend. The fact that this root vegetable is an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), a very good source of vitamin C and manganese, and a good source of copper, dietary fiber, vitamin B6, potassium and iron is enough to say that it needs to be included regularly in our diet.


Ingredients -


Sweet potato 2 medium
Olive Oil 1 tsp

Method of preparation -


Chop into bite size pieces and arange them in a greased cookie sheet.

Spraying oil on the chopped pieces is totally optional.

Preheat the oven to 400F and arrange the sweet potato pieces in a single layer and bake for 27 min.

Take them out and serve as a side dish to Sambar or Rasam or Dal of your choice.

Note - I haven't tried adding spices to this as we all liked the natural taste of sweet potato. Maybe it is the next step to try..

Yet another simple and delicious yet healthy dish is our second entry to the Sunday Snacks -Healthy snacks event hosted by Divya of DilSe.

Serves 3 Adults

Preparation Time 30 min
