Adapted from 'Healthy cooking for your Kids' Cookbook. A lovely side dish. For a quick one dish family meal try adding bits of ham, julienned carrots, green peas and broccoli.

I liked the dish but my family didn't care for it. They aren't huge sweet potato fans and I keep trying to make them, my fault. I like that it's healthy and comes together pretty easily.
This was very tasty de Roche. We enjoyed all the flavours in this quick and easy to make dish. Thanks for sharing.
Very nice blend of flavors, deRoche. Would never have thought to put these together; however the dish came out really good.. My compliments to you! Only changes -- to use Green Onions (Scallions)in place of the leeks and sour cream sub for the creme fraiche. THANKS for posting.
