Stuffed Sweet Potato.

The Holiday Season is coming and I already started experimenting with different recipes to be ready in time. It is so much easier to try different recipes before and pick your favorite ones for the holiday table.

Last week we have been to the Apple Farm and brought home 5 pounds of apples. This was one of the reasons to make something with apples.

The recipe I am sharing today is surprisingly good and delicious. It has all the fall holiday flavors and during the cooking your kitchen will smell like the fall harvest for a long time.

Just a little note. My potatoes were a little dry, so next time I might need to use more coconut oil, or apple sauce.

This dish will definitely work for Thanksgiving Dinner, as a side dish.

Why sweet potato is better than the regular one?

Look at this table:

This is the other proof to go with sweet potato.

My choice this time was sweet potato tots. Yes, you can find them at any grocery store at the freeze isle, but as usual it’s packed with tons of unknown ingredients, chemicals and GMOs. Here is a picture of Trader&Joe’s Sweet Potato Tots ingredients that I took today:

Soy Oil, Corn Starch flash the RED light for me!!!! GMO!!!!

The best choice is homemade ones!!!!

The recipe I am sharing today is a healthy version of potato tots. It’s fat free, gluten free and tastes really good.
