Spiced Sweet Potatoes

Spiced Sweet Potatoes 

Preheat the oven to 425F. Wash your sweet potatoes and poke a few holes in each one for efficient cooking. Place in a foil lined baking dish and bake for 50 minutes, until you can easily insert a knife into each one. Remove from the oven and let sit to cool for 10 minutes. 

Slice the top of each sweet potato and press in the ends to open the sweet potato like an envelope. Mash up the insides gently with a fork. Add ¼ teaspoon each ginger powder (or fresh minced ginger), cinnamon and nutmeg. 

Optional Additions: 1 tbsp ghee, walnuts, candied ginger, pumpkin seeds, maple syrup, or chili for a hearty loaded sweet potato!
