New Taste Thinking:
The above recipe for oven roasted sweet potatoes is one of my favorite side dishes to serve at lunch or dinner. I always make extra because they are great to eat cold the next day. The other day I decided to play around with a hummus-like dip using the leftover sweet potatoes. I must admit that I was a somewhat apprehensive about posting this recipe because it a little weird. The reason I have decide to put it up is that my daughter and I have been enjoying the dip for the past 3 days. Every time I think about passing on the recipe I hear her in the kitchen saying"this is awesome".
