Goat Cheese and Grape Sweet Potatoes

Print

I don’t really have much to say . . . except these Rosemary Goat Cheese Sweet Potatoes are so good. Heck, plain ol’ sweet potatoes are so good, I would eat them straight out of the ground. Psych! But still. I love sweet potatoes for 500 different reasons. Full of flavor. Healthy. Natural energy. Versatile. Oh, and pretty. They’re so pretty. And the first time I ever tried sweet potato fries, I was watching Pitch Perfect in one of those fancy theaters with wine, reclining chairs, blankets, bucket-less popcorn, and an amazing menu of very uppity foods. Think about that, though. My first experience with sweet potato fries was watching one of the funniest movies ever, snuggled in a blanket, drinking wine, next to my hub. What’s not to love?

Further Food Commentary:

Sweet potatoes are loaded with nutrition in one perfect package. They are naturally a good source of fiber which can increase satiety and keep blood sugar levels more stable. Sweet potatoes are also rich in vitamin A, a fat-soluble nutrient important for vision, bone health, and immunity, vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that also plays a role in skin health, and potassium, a necessary nutrient for blood pressure, muscle strength, and metabolism.

The addition of goat cheese also adds a tiny bit of fat, which helps the body absorb the fat-soluble vitamins in the sweet potatoes more readily. It also provides a bit of a calcium and vitamin D boost to the dish, as well as its creamy flavor!
