Vegan Yum Yum Candied Lime Sweet Potatoes
Last night, I made a second recipe from Vegan Yum Yum, Candied Lime Sweet Potatoes. I knew this one was going to be a hit with my sweet-flavor-loving family, but I think I underestimated exactly how big of a hit it would be (I’m not going to name names, but when I came back from the kitchen I caught someone licking their plate)!
The recipe called for the sweet potatoes to be cut with a mandoline, which I don’t have, so I did the thin slicing by hand instead. (Actually, my right arm is a little sore today from slicing, so I think that probably disproves my upper body strength right there…) Other than the lack of equipment, I made the recipe exactly as written. The sugar lime paste the potatoes are tossed in really reminds me of a shower sugar scrub, so you could probably do a little exfoliating if you made up some extra. This is a really quick and flavorful dish to make, and I’m fairly sure it will be a requested side dish around here! The recipe for Candied Lime Sweet Potatoes can be found on page 135 of Vegan Yum Yum.
