When I receive magazines in the mail, I immediately flip to the recipes. Therefore, my favorite publication is Clean Eating Magazine because the entire magazine is recipes. A limited number of recipes can be found on their cleaneatingmag.com web site, as well. This recipe caught my interest but my month delay in printing it was disappointing when I discovered it was no longer there. New recipes had replaced the old ones. It turned into a good thing when, upon doing an Internet search, I discovered http://thefitnessfreak.blogspot.com. Not only had she posted the recipe I was looking for, but she has many other nutritious recipes that I can't wait to try. One I printed was No-Bake Almond-Oat Energy Bites, but that is another day. Today I prepared the recipe I initially was searching for... with a little tweaking.
Sweet Potato-Apple Saute
4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ¾-inch chunks
1 tsp olive oil
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and cut into ½-inch chunks (about 1 cup)
1/8 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp real maple syrup
1 tbsp water (or orange juice)
1/8 tsp black pepper
Cook sweet potatoes in a very small amount of water or orange juice (just enough to steam but not go dry) until they are tender but still firm. Meanwhile, pour oil in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. Add apple and sprinkle with allspice and salt. Saute for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Gently mix sweet potatoes and apples together. Mix together maple syrup, water (or orange juice), and pepper then pour over sweet potatoes and apples. Gently toss.
