Sautéed Sweet Potatoes

Sautéed-Sweet-Potatoes

These sweet potatoes can be a nice substitute for hash browns. The cinnamon brings out the sweetness of the sweet potatoes, but Tex-Mex spices can be used in its place. Serve this dish with scrambled eggs or your favorite Paleo egg recipe.

    I’m also new to Paleo and I have to say I’m so excited and this site really helps with different options with meals =)

    I was looking forward to this, but was disappointed in the results. Maybe my pan wasn’t hot enough. They all turned dark not too long after. I want to serve them for friends who are coming for dinner, but don’t want them to flop (again).

    Sweet potatoes and southwest seasonings are a great mix. Gives it a really different taste.

    i am brand new to paleo – have not yet begun because i have given up meats as i don’t feel well eating them – sluggish; i’ve given up on DIETS and have gone to eating primarily fruits, vegies, nuts, seeds – a friend recommended this as i need to lose 40 lbs

    Hi, I am also new to paleo. When I look at the recipes especially baking recipes, all call for almond and coconut flour. There is minimal variation on ingrediences. It seems to me that everything will taste the same…. Pancakes are very dense for example. Can one make anythiing with these two flours that is fluffy and light? I am affraid that bread will taste the same as pancakes or muffins, will be dry and falling appart…. :-((((
    Any opinion, experiences, ideas? Thank you.

      Manuela – Yes, you can definitely make things that are fluffy and light, especially with almond flour. I also use tapioca flour a lot, which really lightens things up. You can mix a little in with the coconut flour or almond flour for a lighter texture.

    I’m new to Paleo. I’ve been trying different recipes and even a few I’ve mixed up on my own. I’m having fun. Who knew it was so easy. course after you get use to doing things the paleo way. :-) Good Luck to everyone on your healthy journey… :)

    I make this all the time – except with butter instead of coconut oil. A great ‘dessert’

      Angela, thank for the comment. We use coconut oil as butter is not Paleo. Let us know if you try it with coconut oil.
