Sweet potatoes make a wonderful filling for ravioli with a sage-butter sauce.

Sweet Potato Pancakes with sour cream and applesauce.

Sweet Potato Fries - I spray the wedges with cooking spray and sprinkle with chili powder or paprika. Bake on a cookie sheet at about 375 till cooked through. (I may try sprinkling the wedges with lime juice next time.)

Thanksgiving, I either make an apple, yam, marshmallow bake or sweet potato balls. Cook & mash the taters, add s&p, a dab of butter, a drip of orange juice, roll them up, and insert a mini marshmallow in the center. You can roll the balls in finely-chopped pecans, and omit the marshmallow. Bake on a baking sheeet at 350 till heated through.

This idea is one that catches people off-gaurd, and yet, it's so natural.

Baked Sweet Potato Pie in the Skin

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 large Sweet Potatoes
  • 1/2 can (6 fl. oz.) Evaporated Milk
LIghtly pierce the sweet potato skins with a fork in multiple places.
Bake the sweet potatoes in the microwave until they are soft to the touch. Remove and cut in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out the sweet potato meat and mash. You should have about 2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes. Set the skins aside.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Combine the sweet potatoes and other ingredients in a large bowl. Place the skins onto a parchment covered baking sheet. Spoon the filling back into the skins and place into the oven. Bake for 1 hr. Test with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, it's done. Serve with the meal.

I usually serve this with a pork tenderloin and a creamy blue cheese sauce; it’s also great with chicken:
Sweet Potato Ratatouille
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups sweet potato, peeled and diced
1/2 red onion, diced (about 2/3 cup)
2/3 cup green bell pepper, diced
2/3 cup red bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 cup zucchini, diced
2 tablespoons butter
salt and seasoned pepper to taste
In medium saucepan heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add sweet potato and red onion and sauté for about 3 minutes until tender. Add the peppers and chicken stock and cook for 2 more minutes. Add the zucchini and cook 1 minute. Stir in the butter until melted. Add salt and seasoned pepper to taste.
Makes 10 (1/2-cup) servings.

I love sweet potatoe fries dipped in marshmallow and sweet potatoe soup seasoned with nutmeg.

Sweet potatoes mashed with jsut a touch of either brown sugar, ginger, honey, or all three makes a perfect bed on which to serve savory chicken or pork strips. The sweet and complex of the bright orange veggie compliments a savory chicken that has been rubbed with sage, rosemary, oregano, garlic, salt, black pepper, or some combination of the herbs and spices. Throw in something green as a side dish.

Shaheen:

(1) Peel and cube the sweet potatoes into 1" cubes. Boil in water until almost cooked ( about 8- 9 minutes, if I remember rightly) then drain and cool - iced water will stop the cooking.
Sprinkle with salt.
Heat some ghee in a frying pan, and add a generous tbsp of Panch Puran. Shake once then add the potato cubes. Cook for a minute or two until the cubes are impregnated with the spices.

(2) Have you got a recipe for Potato Boonda (or Bonda, I'm not quite sure) - basically, mashed potato with a little garlic and turmeric, wrapped round some spicy peas and coriander leaf, then dipped in a Besan flour batter and deep fried. Use SWEET potatoes and they even more delicious!
