This is an absolute family favorite! My kids love it because it’s so sweet and it’s a great dish for serving if you’re entertaining vegetarians, because it’s so filling and dense in nutrients. It also pairs well with Korean BBQ chicken skewers or a pork roast. 

Sweet potatoes are in peak season October to December, and I always like to take advantage of seasonal produce and I pick them up at my local farmer’s market.
