    I HATE those sugary, gooey sweet potato dishes! We like this a lot, just made it again for guests last night.

    Roasted Sweet Potato Salad With Black Beans and Chili Dressing
    Mark Bittman, NYTimes, 9/30/09

    4 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

    1 large onion, preferably red, chopped

    1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    1 to 2 tablespoons minced fresh hot chili, like jalapeƱo

    1 clove garlic, peeled

    Juice of 2 limes

    2 cups cooked black beans, drained (canned are fine)

    1 red or yellow bell pepper, seeded and finely diced

    1 cup chopped fresh cilantro.

    1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Put sweet potatoes and onions on a large baking sheet, drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil, toss to coat and spread out in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast, turning occasionally, until potatoes begin to brown on corners and are just tender inside, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven; keep on pan until ready to mix with dressing.

    2. Put chilies in a blender or mini food processor along with garlic, lime juice, remaining olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Process until blended.

    3. Put warm vegetables in a large bowl with beans and bell pepper; toss with dressing and cilantro. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve warm or at room temperature, or refrigerate for up to a day.

    Yield: 4 servings.

    This freezes quite well and can be used to take up a fair number of sweet potatoes: Red Bean Sweet Potato Soup; here's a wrap idea:Feta, spinach, and sweet potato wrap.
    I also like to just mash boiled sweet potatoes cooked with Mexican seasonings and add them to black bean burritos. icon_wink.gif

    You're in luck because sweet potatoes are in my good graces again. icon_wink.gif

    I've always been perplexed by the sweet potato/marshmallow combination. Aren't the former sweet enough without stirring in a cup's worth of brown sugar and dumping a package of marshmallows on top etc.?!

    Tuscan Vegetable Soup With Fresh Sage
    Revolutionary Burritos
    Roasted Bell Pepper Soup
    Jamie Oliver's Mashed Root Vegetables

    These recipes call for yams but I'm sure in most cases sweet potatoes will sub well:

    Whipped Beauregard Yams With Cardamom
    Curried Yam and Mango over Basmati Rice
    Vanilla Yam Puree With Autumn Spice Oil
    Roasted Winter Root Vegetables With Apple Cider
