Sweet Potato Pancake Recipe – Add Healthy Sweet Potatoes To Your Dinner Table

Sweet potatoes are a traditional southern soul food that should be loved more often. Sweet potatoes are high in nutritional value, an brilliant source of fiber, vitamins A and C, iron, potassium and calcium. The darker flesh varieties have more vitamin A and beta-carotene than the lighter varieties. As a bonus, sweet potatoes are relatively low in calories and have no stout or cholesterol.

Sweet potatoes can be cooked in most of the ways that regular potatoes are. Baked, boiled, or sauted, sweet potatoes are a nutritious dish.

My favorite sweet potato recipe is a baked sweet potato. Prick the sweet potato all over. Then bake the sweet potato in a moderate oven, or microwave until soft to the touch. When done, moisten with a small crushed pineapple and juice, sprinkle with cinnamon. This is a fantastic meal when watching your calories and stout. No butter needed. Or try these Sweet Potato Pancakes for a different presentation.
