Sugared Sweet Potatoes

The holiday season is upon us. We present a holiday side which is naturally vegetarian but can easily become vegan by substituting vegan margarine for the traditional butter. However you choose to make it, it still tastes marvelous and is simple to prepare.


1-1/3 tbsp unsalted butter or vegan margarine

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/8 tsp salt

1-1/3 tbsp brown sugar, packed firmly

1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into .5 in. thick slices


Place sweet potatoes in a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover saucepan and steam 12-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Remove steamer basket from saucepan. Meanwhile, melt butter or vegan margarine in a heavy nonstick skillet over low heat. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add cooked sweet potatoes to skillet and toss to coat. Serve hot.
