Sweet Potato Recipe
We always prepare this low fat sweet potato recipe for our
holiday dinners. It contains only two ingredients and is super easy to
make. We prefer orange sweet potatoes (often called yams) in this
dish. White sweet potatoes, or even purple ones, work fine too. Weigh
sweet potatoes before you peel them.
