Vegan Yum Yum Candied Lime Sweet Potatoes

March 25, 2010 by Keri

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.

    Thank you, Andria! I think I should probably start doing more upper body workouts instead. 😉
