I cannot take credit for this recipe, it comes from my friend Kristin who is not only a lovely friend, but perhaps one of the greatest and most creative cooks I have ever met.  She made this recipe for me once and I was in love!

Besides tasting great, there are so many amazing health properties of the sweet potato including an amazing source of complex carbs, fibre and vitamins A and C.  The recipe can be made savory by switching out the nutmeg and cinnamon and replacing with cumin.
