'Scary' baked sweet potato slices!

The days feel like they are slipping away so fast at the moment.... I just looked back at my blog feed and realised I've only actually posted one recipe this week (plus a couple of other non-food posts) 

What's going on! 

Life.

I have so many recipes I want to make, so many that have actually been made and are waiting to be turned into blog posts.... but just so little time to do it!  

I blame the coaching courses and Wholeplus.  It will all be worth it in the end I know, and foodie progress with Wholeplus can only be a good thing (updates on all that soon), it just gets frustrating at times when it feels like everything is pulling me away from sitting down to write you a recipe.  

Ah, now that feels better. Strop over.

Ok, I'll keep this short and sweet not least because the recipe is just that. 

I was originally inspired by Gena's halloween themed post and then simple added a savoury twist and some decorations of sorts!  You see some green piping on some of the  faces... that is a dip I hope to share next week, but that is only optional or you can also use this recipe as a base.

P.s the red sauce on the side isn't really a recipe- just some canned tomatoes with spices, but you could try adding this healthy tomato ketchup 

I have one more Halloween themed post (the dip) that I'll try and get up early next week. Then you know what?  I think we need some more cake back in our lives...it's been way too long!

Recipe:  Scary sweet potato slices

Ingredients: 

  • 1-2 long evenly shaped sweet potatoes- cut into 1cm slices
  • 1-2 tsp garam masala (or spices of choice)
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil (or preferred oil)

Decorations: 

  • blanched almonds

Method: 

Mix sweet potato slices with the oil and spices and bake on a lined baking sheet for up 30 minutes until cooked and slightly golden.

I'd love to see what you come up with if you make them!!
