Roasted Purple Sweet Potatoes.

I found purple sweet potatoes at Fresh Market last week. And today was the day to cook 'em up!

And of course, I have pics!

Here's the potato (I believe also called a "ube"...running into some conflicting internet stories), partially peeled (so you can see flesh & skin:

Slices so you can see the cross-section:

Pretty, huh???

So, I was using this recipe, but (of course) made a few modifications. I added about half an onion, in big pieces. I didn't have any cumin seed so I just added a pinch more ground cumin. I also, for some reason, couldn't find cayenne pepper so I used paprika & a bit of chili powder instead.

So pretty, and soooo tasty. I think I like the purple sweet potato even better than the regular! It's a lot sweeter & has a richer flavor. YUM! Would have been even better if I'd had the cayenne.

Made about 4 heaping servings.
