"Orange spiced sweet potato"

Serves 4-6 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 20 minutes

Why I Love This Recipe

Sweet potatoes with juice are very sweet indeed. Between the sweetness and spices, with the rich nut topping, the lack of added calories is not missed in this simply healthy recipe.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 large sweet potatoes
2 Tbsp orange juice or pineapple juice (if not using juice, add 1 Tbsp honey or agave)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt

Optional Sweetened Nut Topping:
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 Tbsp chopped walnuts or pecans


Microwave 2 large sweet potatoes for 7 - 10 minutes. (Times vary depending on the microwave.) Can also peel, dice and boil them for 20 minutes, but will not be able to re-use the sweet potato shell.

Let cool and cut in half. Scoop out the inside with a spoon, leaving whole shell. Combine the sweet potato with all other ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well.

Place back into the potato skins or in a serving dish to serve. If desired mix Sweetened Nut Topping ingredients and spoon on top of sweet potato mixture. Place in microwave, covered, for 30 seconds to heat.

Note: this dish can be made ahead and refrigerated. To reheat, microwave for 1-2 minutes and stir before adding nut topping. Test heat and add 30 seconds at a time until heated through. Then heat 30 seconds more and serve.

Pairs Well With

Turkey, ham or other veggies
