I think that I have finally outgrown baked sweet potatoes with marshmallow topping that is served at our family table every year for Thanksgiving. Although every holiday when the sweet potatoes with the melted and browned marshmallow topping comes out of the oven, I briefly salivate and want to at least swipe a dollop of the hot gooey marshmallows for a little taste. I am practicing great restraint this year. I have discovered another way to prepare sweet potatoes. These Indian spiced sweet potatoes enhance the natural sweetness of the potatoes by roasting them at a high heat with exotic spices allowing the potatoes to brown and crisp and caramelize naturally. I love them and find that they are the perfect compliment to a roasted turkey or other roasted meats.
