Messy Gingered Sweet Potatoes

  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • ½ cup finely chopped onions
  • 2 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 4 cups grated unpeeled sweet potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp organic lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄4-1/2 tsp Herbamare

Full of Goodness

The coconut oil will increase the absorption of the beta-carotene, which becomes vitamin A in the liver and protects the lungs, skin and digestive tract. The ginger and cinnamon give a nice tropical twist and warm up the dish beautifully.

How to make Messy Gingered Sweet Potatoes

1. Place the coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat, and sauté the onions and ginger until soft, about 5 minutes.

2. Add the grated sweet potatoes and lemon juice. Reduce the heat to low and sauté for 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until the sweet potatoes start to soften.

3. Season with the cinnamon and Herbamare to taste. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and serve warm.
