We went to a maple syrup farm today (post forthcoming) and bought some of the delicious products. It was a beautiful sunny day here, but only about 40 degrees. And we got stuck in the mud and had to be pulled out with a tractor (#veganadventures!). Anyway, when we got home I was chilly and just wanting something hot and simple.
I use sweet potatoes a lot. They’re so tasty and so healthy, too. It’s easy to bake several at the beginning of the week and then use them as needed.
Pre-cooked sweet potatoes work perfectly in dishes like this easy to make soup.
Maple syrup is a natural sweet complement to the sweet potatoes. It’s still a sweetener, and you can make this without it, but it’s a bit more healthy than ordinary sugar. And look how pretty it is!
These beautiful ambers are just natural variations in the syrup, depending on how long and hot it’s been cooked down.
At the end of a busy day, it was lovely.
