Sweet potatoes were one of those foods that I decided I didn’t like a long time ago.
I’m so glad I came to my senses and tried them again over the past several years. Not only are they a pretty, pretty orange color… but they’re sweet and so dang delicious!
I’ve put them in chili, I’ve roasted them with coconut oil, I’ve made them into a shepherd’s pie, and now… I’ve made my first Sweet Potato Soup.
