Easy Sweet Potato Cubes
Lately meal prep has been, well, thrown together. We’ve got a lot of frozen food and pantry items that need to be used up, so instead of buying ingredients for complete meals, we’ve been just using what we have. A can of black beans here, a bag of frozen corn there, the rest of the sriracha—you get it. The good news is with a delicious base like sweet potatoes, cleaning out your fridge and pantry becomes really easy!
Baked sweet potatoes are the perfect base for so many meals. Here are a few ideas.
You can make a power bowl with shredded chicken, roasted veggies, quinoa, nuts, and a quick vinaigrette.
You can make a damn tasty breakfast by topping sweet potato cubes with eggs, cheese, and other toppings like steak or salsa.
You can embrace the sweetness by adding a warm peanut butter drizzle and some cinnamon on top!
For meal prep in particular, sweet potatoes rock because they’re a nutrient-rich and slow-digesting carbohydrate that holds up great all week. Let them cool completely then store your sweet potato cubes in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
SEASONED TO PERFECTION
The perfect compliment to sweet potatoes is tarragon seasoning. Tarragon and a pinch of salt is really all you need for perfect sweet potatoes. I like to baked these until they start charring. It creates a nice golden crunch on the outside with a nice, soft interior.
