Banana Vanilla Softserve and Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds


Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds

Enter 1 long-n-skinny sweet potato.

Then I peeled it and sliced it into uniform about 1/4th inch slices, and made fry shapes out of 3 peeled carrots.  Put in a roasting pan with foil.  Don’t forget to line with parchment or foil unless you like doing dishes with lotsa scrapity scrap of food chunks.

I sprinkled about 1 Tbsp Each of Cinnamon & Ground Ginger, couple twists o’ cracky blacky, and then drizzled about 2-3 Tbsp EVOO over the top.

I covered the veggies with another piece of foil across the top and roasted ’em at 400F in the oven for 40 minutes.

Then I uncovered them, flipped em, added a little….and roasted for another 15 mins uncovered.

At this point, if you made a glaze of 2 Tbsp Lime Juice, 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup or Agave, 1 Tsp of Cumin, 1/2 Tsp of Chili Powder or Cayenne you’d have awesome Tex-Mex inspired Sweet Potato Wedges.  Let that glaze cook on those taters for the last 10-15 minsand you’re so in.  I was feeding these to a husband who isn’t thrilled with Tex-Mex but rock it out in your casa.

Voila, really delish.

Here’s dinner…spiralized zuke noods with the Herbalicious Goddess Dressing, tomato & cuke chunks snuggled up next to the roasted sweetie potatoes and carrots.

Some other eats that were really simple, really awesome.  A bed of greens, a few B.S., tomato chunks, carrots, cukes, red & yellow pepps, and dressed with OJ, Agave, and Cracked Black.  I love basic, colorful salads with simple sweet dressing.  It’s music to my tastebuds.  And my tummy.

Earlier I had also made a Breakfast Cookie.

Mix and wait

A day later, enjoy.
