Sam's Sweet Potato Recipes

So if you're wondering what to do with sweet potatoes that doesn't involve marshmallows or the word "fries", here are a couple of ideas. They have no added sugar, and they're quick, easy, and healthy -- but don't let that count against them.

I typically use medium-sized sweet potatoes, so if yours are the size of baseball bats, you might want to modify the amounts slightly.

1 cooked sweet potato, cubed
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cocoa powder
1 to 1 1/2 tsp virgin coconut oil
salt to taste
Add all ingredients to the hot sweet potato. Toss gently, using enough coconut oil to make it glossy. Serve warm.

1 cooked sweet potato, cubed
1 Tbsp peppermint leaves, minced or chiffonade
1/8 tsp ground black cardamom (McCormick) or mace
1 Tbsp virgin coconut oil
Again, toss it all together and serve warm. This one needs the aggressiveness and earthy character of peppermint rather than milder mints. Also, McCormick's black cardamom is very similar to mace, whereas the Indian cardamom I get has a smoky character. You want the resin-like note, without the sweetness of nutmeg.

I remember thinking the Addams family seemed pretty normal to me... Normal in a way where I'd wanna live there. They were some of my favorite characters as a child, and that love has never left me.

I am happy thinking on how this fictional family has been a model for my own life.
