Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes
Recipe by Dana for Minimalist Baker
Fun fact: The high levels of Beta-carotene and Vitamin A found in sweet potatoes is more easily absorbed when digested with 3 to 5 grams of healthy fat. The olive oil and almond milk found in this recipe are examples of heart-healthy fats, and make the Garlic Herb Sauce incredibly decadent. This mouth-watering veggie recipe only takes 30 minutes to prepare, and it’s one that will keep the family feeling warm and full as we transition into winter. Get the recipe at minimalistbaker.com.
