Yes, (sweet) Potato is a vegetable!
Warm glazed sweet potatoes and a tangy peanut sauce are the stars of this recipe. Comfort food – with a healthy, fiber rich twist – is what we like to call this at the Butternut HQ. The best time to eat this? Our in house nutritionist recommends this as an afternoon meal, with a side of greens or a simple raw salad. Heart, wholesome and so delicious!
