One of Evan’s first foods last Autumn was the sweet potato. I would slice it and bake sweet potato fries that were easy for him to hold. He also enjoyed mashed sweet potatoes and these Chai Spiced Sweet Potatoes added a little something extra. This is a wonderful Autumn side dish and I have made it a few times lately as Evan gets his molars.
The sweet potatoes are baked in the oven until tender, peeled, mashed, and mixed with brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and cloves. To make the dish vegan, you can use coconut milk or another non-dairy substitute.
