Baked Sweet Potato
So glad to be back doing what I love doing best – writing J Thanks to all the lovely friends who sent me messages about missing me – let me tell you, I missed you all too… It was fun to have my family visiting. I saw my brother off yesterday at Dulles Airport – No matter how stoic and unemotional we tried to be, the pangs of separation do hurt for a bit, and I will tell you that the thought of coming back to my blog made me perk right up!
It has been a veritable food fest with me cooking a bunch of recipes for my family and managed to take some pictures of at least a few of them – so I can have a bank of recipes to get back into the groove with.

Before adding the Masala

I am starting with a simply ‘sweet’ potato recipe – a healthy baked sweet potato – no big shakes you might say… but the little marinade that goes with it is what makes this dish super delicious….If you want a wholesome dinner, want to avoid carbs in the form of rice, chappatis/bread this is a hearty meal which will fill you up in the nicest possible way – add a salad to it and this may well be the best “I ate healthy today” meal you’ve had in a while!

Here goes:
Ingredients (for 5 people)
5-7 medium sized sweet potatoes washed clean
For the marinade/dressing – you can do pretty much with this but here is what turned out to be a huge hit!
3-4 tbsp olive oil
Bruschetta mix (anything you can find locally)
Garlic flakes
Chili flakes
Basil flakes
Ground pepper
Sea salt
Herbs de Provence
Bake at 400 for 1 hour – See the pictorial presentation for how to – Ending on a Denverish note – Hey, it’s good to be back here again; Sometime’s this blog seems feels like a long lost friend, yes and hey, it’s good to be back here again:)esame seeds
