Sweet potatoes with cinnamon apples and cranberry sauce

in food •  last year

I cooked delicious sweet potatoes to go along with my dinner last night. I was in the mood for something sweet that tasted like a dessert. Sweet potatoes have so many health benefits! They are high in vitamin B6, C, D and are a good source of iron, magnesium and potassium. Sweet potatoes do not cause blood sugar spikes, ward off cancer, and protect against the effects of aging. You can enjoy them roasted, puréed, steamed, baked, microwaved or grilled. I put them in the microwave this time for a quick side dish.

I cooked fresh cranberries but you can use a can if preferred.
