      It was delicious. I like to add cloves, oregano, thyme and basil, with a little dash of cumin, in addition to the rest of the recipe.

      Hello Rochelle,

      I hope you are doing well :)

      Wow, that's nice :) Indeed, sweet potatoes and yams are best, they contain lots of nutritional benefits.

      haha...that is my favorite combination. Potatoes + Mojito :)

      I tried it few months back so thought to share with you guys :)

      Regards,

      Thanks!.. I have done similar things and they are delicious. I think sweet potatoes and yams are very underused, which is a shame since they pack in a lot of nutrional benefits plus great flavor. I like the mojito sugestion too, for the vitamin C, of course

      I just made these today, but I use a lot of different seasonings. It is a go-to dish whenever things get very hectic or we just want something simple to snack on....or even as a side dish.

      Thanks for sharing.
