Daily Vegan Lunch for 17 January, 2013: A Very Sweet Potato

a very sweet potato

INGREDIENTS

1 large sweet potato, washed
2 Tablespoons maple syrup or brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons vegan butter or water

DIRECTIONS

Wash unpeeled sweet potato (in the US, they are often called yams but they are actually technically sweet potatoes because Americans are dumb) and poke it at least five times with a fork. Bake for 45 minutes at 400 degrees — I did this on a tray with a bunch of other veggies, this time it was beets and squash so I could process them later — or alternately put in microwave for 5 minutes on high.

Take potato out of the oven, split it down the middle, and mash the inside with a fork. Scoop the inside mash out with a spoon and put in a bowl so you can mash the sides. Add vegan butter, syrup, and cinnamon to the mashed part of the potato in the bowl. Re-stuff the filling in the potato and eat.
