Sweet Potato Mango Casserole

Updated on March 15, 2017

Sweet Potato Mango Recipe

I am a vegetarian, and therefore, I love to experiment with different vegetables and fruits in order to construct a new recipe. I love the use of exotic fruits, such as mangoes and pineapples, that are not used quite as frequently as some of the more "normal" fruits, like apples or oranges.

I find it interesting and creative to make a new dish that hasn't been made before and to make it with fruits and vegetables that are not normally used.

I also love to present a dish that is somewhat different and hopefully will make your mouth water.
