Yummy and interesting. A nice change from the sweet marshmallow recipes for Sweet potatoes. A good lunch or light dinner. Just one large sweet potato will give you the 4 cups of shredded that you need. The potato doesn't mash and become creamy, it stays more firm. It tastes similar to Indian food with the savory and sweet together. Definitely worth a try.
This recipe is from "Moosewood Restaurant Cooks At Home" which is full great vegetarian recipes and a few fish recipes. I serve this with a mango salsa that I either make (from the Moosewood website) or buy at Bristol Farms. A great way to serve sweet potatoes or yams without adding a ton of butter or some sugar.
I forgot to give you your stars! Sorry!
These were very good and a little different from your average quesadilla. The sweet potato cooks down alot, so don't think you're going to have too much, just follow the recipe.
Surprising but tasty dish. I didn't grate the potato, just microwaved until soft and easy to peel, then roughly chopped it into the onions. I didn't measure anything, so my proportions might have been off, but the combination was great. Thinking of frau frau's comment about indian food, I added curry powder, and left out the cayenne. I'll be making this again
A friend of mine used to make this recipe out of her moosewood cookbook. They are a little bland until you add a little more spice to bring out all of the flavors. I usually add some tapatio hot sauce and some green chili powder that I picked up in Santa Fe.
My husband and I loved these! What a great way to use sweet potatoes. I will be making this recipe often.
