I think each and every season makes the produce section an adventure. It’s a taste testing experiment ground, a way to introduce children to new foods and different flavors. This fall, we are pulling sweet potatoes back to the table & who knows, we might even serve them this way for Thanksgiving. Why not? They love them & I’m happy when they eat health foods & like them.
‘Cinnamoned’ Sweet Potatoes by Jodie Fitz
3 Large Sweet potatoes
1/3 cup light olive oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Rinse, Peel and thinly slice the potatoes. Using CLEAN HANDS, mix everything together. Sorry, a spoon just doesn’t quite do the trick on this one. But, the kids will love this activity.
Spread a tablespoon of olive oil onto a non-stick backing sheet. Evenly place the sweet potatoes flat along the sheet and if needed add a dash of salt and cinnamon. It’s amazing how cinnamon, not sweet itself, can bring out the natural sweetness in the sweet potato.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until the edges of the potatoes are crispy. YUM – a perfect addition to the dinner table is served!
