At one of our first romantic dinners, this recipe won the heart (and stomach!) of my husband. It’s a super-fast recipe that wows every time. Sweet potato isn’t a nightshade vegetable and is lower on the glycemic index than white potatoes, making it a great anti-inflammatory comfort food. Sweet potato has more than double the amount of fiber than two white potatoes of the same size. It’s also a great source of vitamin B6, a critical nutrient for supporting hormone balance.
Note: Two pounds of sweet potato is approximately six small thin sweet potatoes that are two inches thick and four inches long. Thinker roots are harder to chop so look for small when possible.
