    You can actually toss the sweet potatoes in a bowl with cooking spray any flavor and cut the calories even more. They are just as good. I love them done like this. - 11/1/08

    This is one of the best ways to cook sweet potatoes next to grilling. I toss them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Sometimes I add chopped red pepper (large dice), red onion, and chicken sausage and let it roast all together at 375. This is such a comforting dish and the taste is wonderful - 2/18/10

    I try to avoid unnatural, genetically modified foods, so I subbed olive oil for the canola oil and canola oil butter. I used a dash of nutmeg and a generous amount of cinnamon. It actually took about 60 minutes to get the cubes tender in my oven, but they turned out great! - 1/13/13

    I used extra virgin cold-pressed coconut oil and a bit of organic butter instead. More calories, but I enjoy the health benefits of these, plus coconut oil adds a subtle, sweet flavor. These are versatile because you can add seasonings to make sweet or savory. - 12/27/12

    This is one of our favorites. I also cut up some onions and squash (usually 2 different kinds) and baby carrots, put them all in a bowl and toss w/little bit of olive oil and whatever spices sound good. The sweet potato makes the other veggies sweeter and we get a variety of nutrients. - 11/1/08

  • Amazing that creators of "healthy" recipes use margarine, canola oil & artificial sweetners. Does anyone do research first? Margarine is not real food. Canola oil is bleached, deodorized & worse. These are NOT healthy. Why use Splenda when healthier REAL food sweeteners like Stevia exist.
