This is a recipe that I picked up on a recent trip to Central Market in Dallas, TX. Sounds like a healthy way to prepare sweet potatoes.

I have only had sweet potatoes a handful of times, and they were almost always sweet. We are trying to eat healthier and since sweet potatoes are better for you than white potatoes, I decided to try this recipe. I am glad I did! I used 2 large sweet potatoes, so we probably had a little less than 7 cups, and I used 2 tbsp of light margarine rather than 1 tbsp butter, but otherwise followed the recipe. The potatoes were super tender and the onion had just a tiny bit of snap left (which I like). We will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe that makes eating a little healthier easier.
