I love sweet potatoes and instead of peeling them to bake or boil I just wash them, cut the ends off, stick with a knife and put them in the microwave for 10 minutes, check them and flip them over if needed.

They cook very fast and this is a very tasty and quick way to make them.

Sometimes I add butter, cinnamon, or marshmallows.

Total Time: 30 minutes or less

Yield: 3 cups

Ingredients:

Just sweet potatoes, amount depends on how big your microwave is and how many you actually want to cook.

A variation of the traditional baked sweet potato and tastes more like a dessert than a side dish.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Bake sweet potato for 45 to 50 minutes in 400 degree F. preheated oven or microwave for 5 to 7 minutes (either way, until tender when pricked with a fork). Remove skin and mash in a bowl (I cut in half and scoop out with a large spoon). Stir in remaining ingredients and serve ;-)

I just love sweet potatoes. I'm happy to say that they are very nutritious. As with other vegetables, the deeper their color, the better they are for you. This recipe is easy, and one of my favorite ways to serve this delicious veggie. It goes especialy well with pork, and is a good foil for spicy barbecue.

If you make these a bit sweeter, and add nuts and whipped cream, they are just wonderful chilled for dessert. This saves the calories of putting them in a pie crust, and is still nutritious.

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 15-oz. can of coconut milk (not the thicker, sweet, coconut creme)
  • 1 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. finely minced crystallized ginger, optional

Directions:

Mix everything but the ginger in a saucepan. Simmer, covered, about 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender, stirring often. Stir in the ginger. Serve.

This is also very good cooked with more brown sugar and the addition of roughly chopped pecans. When tender, chill, and serve with unsweetened whipped cream and a sprinkling of coconut.

It is good to mix carrots and sweet potatoes with sugar free whipped cream on top of them. It is really good and a way to disguise carrots.

For years, I dreaded "the sweet potatoes," and kept it to myself. Then, I watched Alton Brown on the Food Network, "Good Eats: Potatoes, My Sweet," and I am forever changed.

Can you still use them if they are sprouting?

I've done for years and so far no-one has died:) I also have safely used the ones that have started to go green. However, the 'trick' is to completely peel the potato. Otherwise you do run the risk of making yourself and anyone who shares the meal with you slightly to considerably sick (ask me how I know this part, sigh).

Peel the potato completely, making sure to go deep enough into the flesh of the spud to completely eliminate the sprouted eyes (or the green-yellow tinge).

Use these potatoes only for mashing, don't try to bake them, for example. Once they've sprouted (or started to go green) you need to peel the entire potato to make it usable.

And if you aren't sure about any food being safe, remember the cardinal, number one kitchen rule: If in doubt - throw it out! Better to 'waste food' than be sick from food poisoning.
