After tasting the amazing flavor combo of tangy goat cheese, fresh sage and sweet potatoes, you’ll be even more pleased that this beautiful, 21 Day Fix – approved side dish was SO easy to make!
This is a fixified version of a dish that I’ve been making for many years now. Well, truth-be-told, I’d actually “fixified” it after the first time I made it (not that that was a thing then, but you get my point). I searched all over the interweb today in hopes of finding the original recipe (and, therefore, it’s author) so I could give credit where it’s due, but alas, I was unsuccessful. Like I said, I’ve had this one for a long time.
Anyway, the first time I made it, we all loved the combination of flavors, but the recipe called for frying the sage in butter and then pouring the butter over everything. I know, sounds pretty freaking good, right?! I’m not saying it wasn’t, but I had a feeling that eliminating that part of it wouldn’t make much of a difference flavor-wise and would obviously be much better for us. It was fantastic, and actually I liked the butter-less version better because it wasn’t greasy at all, but it still had all of that great flavor. Plus I found that I liked the taste of fresh sage better than fried sage, but, hey, maybe that’s just me!
Thought for the day: If you aren’t already roasting your veggies, it’s time to start! I can’t tell you how many veggies my kids will eat roasted that they wouldn’t eat in other ways, like raw or steamed. There might even be a vegetable or two out there that you may come to love that you never thought you would 🙂
