Recipe – Low GI/GF Sweet potatoes

August 1, 2010

I have decided to start a new blog to go along with this one soon.  This blog has turned into a more personal commentary on whatever I am thinking or feeling at the moment.  The new blog  is going to be a cooking blog.   I have a ton of recipe’s from my family who are great Southern cooks and I want to turn them into gluten-free and low Glycemic Index.   In the meantime, here is a recipe that my sister use to cook for Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc.  I have converted it to low Glycemic Index and it  is gluten-free.  You are welcome to try it.  We really enjoyed it today.

Ingredients:   2 to 4 sweet potatoes (Peel and cut into round pieces about 1/3 ” in thickness. )

1 Tbls. orange zest

3-4 Tbls.  organic Blue Agave –

Steps:                  After peeling, washing and cutting potatoes into round dollops put in small boiler and cover with water.

Boil until soft – Just a few minutes

Take potatoes and put in a small Pyrex or casserole dish gently so you don’t break them up.

Cover with orange zest and Agave

Cover with a lid or foil if you don’t have one

Bake on 325 for about 25 minutes

Delicious – Hope you enjoy
