I try not to have regrets and I really can’t say that I have many in life. I do however have one big one.
I regret that I spent the first twenty years or so of my life not liking sweet potatoes.
Really? What was I thinking? I don’t even think that I actually disliked sweet potatoes themselves. I think I disliked the idea of them. I decided at some point that I didn’t like them – most likely without ever having tasted them – and didn’t eat them for years. Now, I’ve got to make up for it. I love sweet potatoes. I love them prepared just about any way, but this weekend we tested out a new recipe. And I’m a huge fan. It may be one of my favorite sweet potato recipes yet.
The recipe for Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes is delicious not only because it is a sweet potato recipe, but because it adds a savory flavor to the naturally sweet food. The mixture of spices is perfect. Roasted white potatoes with herbs has always been one of my favorites, but for some reason I had never thought of roasted sweet potatoes with herbs. This recipe will definitely be in our rotation of sides from now on. It should be in yours, too!
