There were yams on one side and sweet potatoes on the other. Unless the store mixed them up, I got sweet potatoes and will be giving this a go tomorrow or Wednesday.

Actually, most everything the stores refer to as yams are technically sweet potatoes.

What's The Difference Between Sweet Potatoes and Yams?

Glad you liked it Pac. Does this mean you are a sweet potato convert?

I often use quinoa instead of bulgar. Barley would probably work as well.
Thanks, that sounds good, too. And I have all of the ingredients to make it tonight.

Thank you, Tina! I'm glad you enjoyed them. Just being curious but whereabouts in Yorkshire do you live? I have several good friends who live in the Pontefract area in West Yorkshire, and another who lives near Leeds.

Chili Lime Sweet Potatoes Neither my wife nor I learned to like sweet potatoes until relatively late in life. Growing up, they were always served at family get togethers drowning in marshmallows, brown sugar, and maple syrup - more like a dessert than a side dish. That turned us off of them for years, until I started experimenting with more savory recipes. This is hands down my favorite recipe for sweet potatoes. It's quick and easy and, best of all, there is nothing sweet about it. We have these at least once a month and there's usually a fight over who gets the last serving. [SIZE=4]Chili Lime Sweet Potatoes[/SIZE] Ingredients: [LIST] [*]2 lbs garnet or jewel sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes [*]1/2 red onion, chopped [*]1 tbsp olive oil [*]1/4 tsp salt [*]1/2 tsp chili powder [/LIST] Dressing: [LIST] [*]1 tbsp olive oil [*]1 tbsp lime juice [*]zest from one lime, finely minced [*]1 clove garlic, finely minced [*]1/2 tsp salt [*]1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro [/LIST] Preparation: [LIST=1] [*]Preheat oven to 425F [*]Toss sweet potatoes, onions, olive oil, salt, and chili powder. Arrange potato mixture in a single layer on a greased baking sheet. Roast for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. [*]While the potatoes are in the oven, whisk together dressing ingredients. Toss hot potatoes in dressing and serve. [/LIST] 3 stars 1 reviews
