Sweet Potato Bites with Maple Mustard Dip
I hope your New Year is off to a great start. For those of us with resolutions for healthy eating, I have the perfect appetizer – Sweet Potato Bites with Maple Mustard Dip. It’s a delicious combination of sweet and tangy – and you can add a little (optional) heat with cayenne powder, to give them a kick.
If you prefer to save a few calories, you can forgo the sauce. The the sweet potatoes are wonderful all on their own, too (that’s the way my kids eat them), and they’d make a great side dish to most any meal this way.
Either way, you can’t eat just one. And, that’s a good thing – sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. Plus, they’re a good source of potassium and dietary fiber, too. Enjoy!
