No. 1 : Quick Recipe

Double Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

  • 2 Large Sweet Potatoes 
  • 1 TB Unsalted Butter
  • 2 TB Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 TB Garam Masala
  • 1 Tsp Turmeric
  • ½ Tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • ½ Tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Milk
  • 8 OZ Shredded Cheddar
  • 1 Cup Chopped Roasted Pecans

Step One

Prick the skins of the sweet potatoes several times and roast in a 400F oven until soft about 45 minutes to an hour. When cool enough to handle, cut the potatoes in half and scoop the flesh out of the skins into a bowl, making sure to keep the skins intact. 

Step Two

Melt the butter and oil together in a small skillet and sauté the garam masala, turmeric, salt and pepper together in the mixture until fragrant. Add in the coconut milk, and pour the warm mixture into the sweet potatoes. Mash with the potatoes

Step Three

Spoon the sweet potato mixture into the empty potato shells. Sprinkle the white cheddar on top and place in a 350F oven until warmed throughout, about 15 minutes. Garnish with the chopped pecans and serve.

​If you’re looking forward to a vegetarian meal these sweet potatoes are perfect. To make it vegan, simply replace the butter with another TB of oil, and use vegan cheese to replace  the cheddar topping the potatoes. Voila – vegan!

No. 3 : Clever Idea

Garam Masala is one of my favorite spice blends. You can find in your local grocery store, or online at Penzeys. You find it to be a rich fragrant blend of spices that is said to be unique to every family in India. Cinnamon, Coriander, Black Pepper, Turmeric, Cumin, Fennel Seeds and Mustard Seeds are just a few of the spices that may be included.

No. 4 : CHEERS

Grand Bouqueteau Chinon
Loire Valley, Chinon France
About $18.00

100% Cabernet Franc makes this wine taste of dried fruits, warm baking spices like cinnamon and cardamom and perfumed dark berries. We might call it an “old world wine”, since its from the Loire Valley in France, and named for the small quaint town of Chinon. This vibrant cherry red colored bottle makes a delicious match to sweet potatoes, pork or chicken with a cherry or berry sauce. Cabernet Franc is a fun way to expand your wine repertoire – it’s genetically the “daddy” of Cabernet Sauvignon.
