Sweet Potatoes, Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing

Did you have a good day today? I did but I was extremely busy!  It was not the kind of day where I could take Skylar and play on backyard swing sets since we were busy running errands, cooking, cleaning, and catching up on laundry.   She’s my little helper.


From my earlier post today about my online order, it got me thinking that I need to get busy making some Nooch Recipes now that I have my stash replenished.

I need to make some more Spicy “Doritos” Cheezy Dip

MY OTHER RECIPES

 

Or maybe I should whip up another Cheezy Vegetable Bake

The Nooch is perfect in the baked veggies

I have about 15 nooch recipes compiled, here

Since I eat so many salads and dressings really help make the salad and keep things interesting, I made a Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing.

I combined:

1 part Vegan Slaw Dressing (or just use Vegenasie or Mayo if you don’t want to make a batch of homemade vegan slaw dressing)

1 part mustard

1 part honey (I did a post here on Honey, i.e. Raw/Local honey, Vegans & Honey, etc.)

Stirred.  And poured over my salad

 

Pair the Salad with Sweet & Sour Honey Lemon Tofu

 

And I also wanted to roast a sweet potato but couldn’t decide if I wanted sweet potato rounds, i.e. chips…

….Or

Sweet Potato Fries

And then I got sidetracked, ran out of time to roast anything, and had to go get ready for work so will have to save the sweet tater roasting for another day.

 

From my last post on Online Ordering and Mini’s.  It was fun to hear what you’ve ordered lately.  And what mini foods, or things, you like.  No one likes a mini bank account, though, right?

Dessert/Snack: Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter & Oat Snack Bars

Questions:

1. Do you like nooch (nutritional yeast) and if so, what’s your fave way to use it?

Yes, see my Nooch Recipes.  I adore it!

It’s one of those foods I discovered through blogging a couple years ago and have no idea how I ever lived without it!

2. Do you like mustard?

Oh yes!  As you can see from my salad dressing concoction.

And I posted here how I was reunited with a long lost love after 10 years!

3. Do you like sweet potatoes and if so, what’s your fave way to eat them?

I find that exactly how one prepares them has a huge impact on finished product, especially when roasting them…

how thick or thin you cut/slice the potatoes

shapes used, sticks/wedges/fries/rounds

covered/uncovered

to oil or not and whether you spray, coat, drizzle, toss in oil, etc.

flip or not

heat/temp

time

…All make SUCH a big difference in the finished product.

I need to make some cinnamon and sugar sweet potato chips, soon!  I love eating sweet potatoes that way.

And then I could dip them into the salad dressing mixture I made.  Sweet, savory, mustardy, all rolled into one.

How do you make your sweet potatoes?

  1. I just started eating nooch and it’s so versatile I love it! I am gonna have to try one of your recipes for using notch because they all look so delicious! :)

  2. Honey mustard is by far my favorite dressing! Such a simple way to make it, too…and serving it with carrot fries is perfect. :)

  3. HAHA this is too funny because I’m currently eating a salad with sweet potato chunks and topped with honey-mustard dressing. So YES, I like sweet potatoes! I usually just wrap them in a paper towel and microwave them for a minute and a half or so. Easy peasy. And I also love nooch and mustard. Lots of orangey/yellow things on your blog today!!

  4. Yum! That creamy honey mustard dressing looks amazing. I think I’ll have to make it for my salad today. I was thinking about having a sweet potato for lunch today too so, that’s perfect! If I sprinkle some nutritional yeast on that salad, I’ll be golden! ;-) Yes…mustard, sweet potatoes and nutritional yeast are all wonderful things!

  5. i cant feel that you truly arent popular because you certainly contain the existing.

  6. I love sweet potato rounds, fries, etc, but I really just like a good roasted (aka microwaved!!) sweet potato with some cinnamon and brown sugar on top. They are so delicious.

    That honey mustard dressing sounds delicious!

    Thanks again for your help RE: kombucha!

  7. Favorite way to eat sweet potatoes: Cubed and sauteed in coconut oil with onions. (I know the onions would ruin it for you!)

  8. Those roasted sweet potatoes look amazing. I think the better question for me is is there anyway you don’t like sweet potatoes? The answer so far is NO! I will say my least favorite way to eat them is in a creamy soup.. !

  9. I currently don’t have an oven so I’m limited in the way I can cook things. I love nuked sweet potatoes but would love to try sweet potato fries. Someday…

  14. I lurve sweet potato fries…but tonight I made the BEST sweet potato pancake for dinner;

    One medium Sweet Potato
    1/2 C of baby bella mushrooms, chopped fine
    2 oz of onions
    healthy tablespoon of diced garlic
    A little olive oil
    Seasalt

    basically I boiled the sweet potato, while it was boiling, I diced the mushrooms, and the onions. I heated the oil in a pan, and browned the garlic a bit, threw on the onions. I like mine still sweet and semi-crunchy so I only sauteed them for a minute, pulled them off and mixed them with the mushrooms. When the potatoes were done (about 15-20), I mashed them and mixed everything together, made patties, and browned it.

    so many levels of yum.

  15. I love sweet potato fries, and I usually dip them in a homemade mustard mayo dip with lime and curry added in.

    I also really like nooch. I love it in Vegan Alfredo pasta!! I have to make your cheesy dip, because it looks like something the hubby and I would LOVE.

  16. Love nooch! I didn’t know anything about it until stumbling into blogworld, but now I add it to almost everything! I always use it in my one bowl meals that usually contain quinoa or rice, veggies, and marinara!

    Mustard…eh, I could take it or leave it!

    Sweet potatoes are my life! Favorite way to have them is HEAB’s cocoa roasted sweet potatoes!

  17. mmmm, did somebody say sweet potato fries?! One of my favorites!!

  18. I like sweet potatoes best cut into thick wedges and roasted. I also like them simply cooked in the microwave with almond butter spread on. One way I’m not too fond of them is mashed. Too thick for me…
