Un-Recipe – Roasted Sweet Potato

I nearly forgot about our un-recipes – can’t remember when I last shared one with you.  Yesterday was one of those “suckers-on-my-butt” kind of days and didn’t leave the computer until it was nearly supper time.  I know, I know – I should have planned ahead.  I needed food but wasn’t much in the mood for cooking so a quick non complicated meal was required.  These tasty sweet potatoes were the perfect accompaniment to some left over roast pork.

  1. You know as many times as I’ve cooked sweet potato fries in the oven, I’ve never put ginger on them…what a brilliant idea! Yours look so yummy, and the color is so different from the red ones we get here. Have a great day, Mandy!

  2. I love roasted sweet potatoes! I’m the only one in the house that will eat them, but I don’t mind that at all. I just get to keep them all for me then. 🙂

  3. I love sweet potato and white is my favourite. I too often have days where I’m glued to my chair until dinner time and it’s not good for me. I try now to get up every 20 minutes or so and walk around to keep the circulation going xx

  4. Looks like a recipe to me, or close enough to one. You’ve got the ingredients, how to put it together, cook & of course the final, beautiful photo. I didn’t think they were sweet potatoes – they look so white. I wonder if they taste the same as our orange ones that we have here. In any case, love sweet potatoes.
    It seems lately that all I make are un-recipes.

    • Diane, you are very kind, thank you! I think the orange sweet potatoes do taste a little different, I haven’t often seen them here so can’t really say. Oh, I too am making more un-recipes than recipes of late. Hope you are well. 🙂 xo
