Submitted by: LIMUEL

Introduction

A great way to increase your intake of the fiber and phytonutrients in sweet potatoes without the added salt and fat of eating a baked sweet potato with brown sugar and butter or cooking with recipes which use dairy.

Ingredients

    Sweet Potato, one, peeled and chopped
    Water, 2 cups
    Cinnamon Stick
    Oatmeal, 1 cup dry
    Raisins or Dates (a small handful) or Maple Syrup, 1 tbsp as OPTIONAL sweeteners listed in order of calorie count from highest to lowest.
    Cinnamon powder, to taste, optional


Tips

This refrigerates well. I warm in the microwave with a splash of rice milk. To shorten cooking time, cut the sweet potato in small chunks and it will cook faster. I quarter the potato and cut it at less than 1/2 inch intervals. That makes for easy eating and faster cooking. Just eyeball it. TIMESAVER: Cut the potato the evening before, place in your pot with water and the cinnamon stick. Heat to boil then simmer while your getting the oatmeal out. This recipe is as low as 220 calories per serving but the sky is the limit depending on how many sweeteners you use.

Directions

Place the cinnamon stick in the water and put on high heat. Peel and chop the sweet potato and place in the water. Bring to a boil and the simmer once it starts to boil. Cook until soft but not mushy. Once at desired softness, stir in the oatmeal and cover letting the liquid absorb. Add more oatmeal if you want it less wet. Cook to your preferred consistency. If you are using the raisins or dates for sweetening, add them with the oatmeal (if you like them soft) or add them once the oatmeal is in your serving bowl. Add maple syrup and/or cinnamon powder prior to serving.

Serving Size: Makes two big bowls.
