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.
