Baked Purple Japanese Sweet Potatoes with Ginger spiced Pineapples

No dessert. No problem. So I am doing a spiritual cleanse. You know the first thing I crave is something sweet. I make my own sweet treats and they are usually made with organic sugar, maple syrup or honey. Lately maple syrup, because of some disturbing things I heard about bee farms. :(.

So I am super craving something yummy and says, Dessert!!  Desperate times call for desperate measures.

I made these yummy and sweet purple sweet potatoes and added some pineapples on top after they baked with a little ginger, cardamom and cinnamon. They are so delicious. Sweet craving conquered.

Baked Purple Japanese Sweet Potatoes

2 small to medium sweet potatoes

1 tsp olive oil, or not

2 sheets of parchment paper

1/2 cup pineapples, diced

1/2 tsp ginger powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp cardamom

pinch of sea salt

Heat oven to 400° F. Pierce each sweet potato several times with the tines of a fork. Place the sweet potatoes on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper, drizzle with oil if you like. Bake until tender, about 45 minutes. Make a slit in the top of each sweet potato. In a bowl add the pineapples and the spices together. Add the pineapples in the middle of the slit of each potatoes. I removed parchment paper from the cookie sheet and put the potatoes back onto the cookie sheet  (because the paper will burn under a broiler, so please remove it.)

I drizzled a little coconut oil over the potatoes and put them under the broiler until the tips got a little caramelized, keep an eye on them, because they will burn.  Remove from the broiler and carefully plate. Enjoy your Nature’s Sugar.
