If sticky, mashed-up, marshmallow-covered sweet potatoes aren’t your thing, try this healthier alternative. We’ve skipped the butter and marshmallows and used maple syrup to complement the natural sweetness of the potatoes. Roasting them gives them a great texture that gives you something to bite into!
Who needs marshmallows? Try this incredibly delicious, super simple and healthier sweet potato side instead.
