So I am going to eat more rice and potato based things to even out my diet of high protein. What is an easy quick delicious way of making and cooking sweet potatoes yams n all that stuff. I have been told to cut them up into small square like figures and bake in a bowl or somthin for 20-30 mins with some butter n sea salt perhaps? Most of my meals are on the go or i have to warm up again later so i will be fridge-rating most foods till i can micro wave or re heat later. Thanks for the tips :) -ProudPaleo42

This works for me, too, specifically for yams/sweets.

I make mashed potatoes out of sweet potatoes. I add cream, butter and cinnamon.

You can use this recipe and omit the maple syrup and pepper and use heavy cream instead of half and half and cinnamon instead. Easy to reheat in the microwave the next day.

For easy on-the-go meals, you can bake sweet potatoes and yams in their skin and store them in the fridge in a container or foil. I like them even better this way, personally. Once they cool, the skin loosens and you can easily peel it off for an instant meal. There's usually some carmelized bits that make them even more sweet and delicious, hot or cold.

I don't like plain potatoes that have been baked in advance quite as much. They seem to lose too much moisture and take on a weird rubbery texture. Boiling or steaming them might be a better choice for potatoes if you need to have them ready to go in advance.

I cut my sweet potatoes up into fries, pour some Rinaldo's Organic Garlic Gold Oil on it, some kosher salt, some black pepper, and lots and lots of smoked paprika. Bake it in the oven at 428 F for about 20 minutes. I eat this every other day as a side to my meat. It's one of my favorite things to eat.

from http://www.mealsforyou.com/cgi-bin/recipe?id.10180

"Wash sweet potatoes. Puncture a few times with a fork. Place on paper towel on microwave-safe dish. Cook on high for 4-5 minutes for the first potato, plus 2-3 minutes for each additional potato. Turn over potatoes halfway through cooking."

cut em open and slather the insides with butter before serving. easy and super yummy. truffle salt makes it unbelievably good.

the fastest way i have found to cook sweet potatoes is in the microwave on high for about 10 minutes. i start with 6 minutes, then judge how much more time is needed from how done it is at that point. two takes longer...

I usually cut a sweet potato into inch cubes, put them in some water, pop into the microwave for 5-7min, with boiling sweet potatoes it keeps the GI index low compared to baking them!;o)

Cut sweet potato into thirds, slice vertically, rotate, slice again. Repeat. Fries.

Saute them in tallow, coconut oil, ghee, or bacon fat. When you start cooking them, start preheating oven to 450f and stir to ensure equal coating of fat.

Fry and rotate intermittently. Add cinnamon and tumeric. Mix in.

Once oven is preheated, pour fries onto tin foil on a baking sheet. Add salt.

Bake until crispy, perhaps rotating once or twice.

Deeelicious.
