View Full Version : Sweet Potatoes

How do you folks prepare your sweet potatoes?

I find the canned stuff to be all loaded with sugar and crap...I bake mine but they take such a huge amount of time that it's become a pain in the arse.

I'm tempted to go hardcore and just eat the little bastards raw like an apple.

I put mine in the microwave. If you nuke them in a ziplock baggy, they don't get all dry. Just don't nuke it so long that the bag melts. ;)

LMFAO raw!! Ouch. I nuke em too. Not too sure if that kills some of the good stuff in them tho. Anyone have anything on that? Is nuking them bad?

i cut it into big chunks ~2 inches, cover with saran wrap, nuke it for 4 mins with a small amount of water. it ends up steaming them - all the water is absorbed and they get soft and mushy.

slice em, lay'em on a baking at sheet add some olive oil and roast at 350 for 25 minutes

Poke it with a fork, 5 minutes in the microwave, chop it up, cover it with cottage cheese.

I'm gonna have to try some of these.

Thanks for the input gang. :)

You can boil them just like a potato. I often boil them whole and then eat them whole like you would an apple.

I just cook a bunch at once in the oven and put em in the fridge then nuke em when I eat em. Damn, I need to eat more sweet potatoes.
