This one is another great side dish that is similar to the Parmesan sweet potatoes I wrote about a couple weeks ago. The flavors are different and really bring out the sweetness of the sweet potato.
Sweet potatoes are really great to highlight during this time of year because they provide our bodies with a lot of different nutrients that go on to boost or heart health, immune health and blood sugar regulation.
