“Good things come from unexpected places.”
On a recent trip to the market I had sweet potatoes on my shopping list. It was then that I came across a Japanese sweet potato. I like to try the untried, which generally is a delightful discovery except for that one time when I was young and naive and … Whatever.
When I got home I was anxious to try this particular sweet potato so I put it into the oven along with a sealed pack of garlic, onions, and Brussel sprouts that were lightly sprinkled with coconut oil.
When everything was done, after an hour at 385 degrees, I cut open the sweet potato and discover that its inside was white, bordering on a creamy yellow.
However, its taste was amazingly like a sweet potato. Winner! There was nothing more to do but top the potato with the baked goodies and crown it all with a diced avocado.
Notice the delightful sprig of parsley. OK. Maybe a little diced red pepper for color would have been nice. For company I would do that. I’m a good woman.
