Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Bites

What makes this recipe special?
Jump to Recipe
This recipe was a last-minute creation while prepping for a TV news station segment. We had planned on creating our Un-lasagna recipe but realized after already getting into the kitchen to prep that we forgot to purchase the eggplant! Kind of hard to make those if there is no base to hold it all together… But then we looked at our vegetable inventory and saw the sweet potatoes lying there, waiting to be used! Once these gluten-free sweet potato bites were made, we each planned to eat one in order to test them out. That didn’t happen: We wound up eating several and had to cut ourselves off so we would have enough for TV!

Why eat the Sweet Potato Bites?

According to Healthline, sweet potatoes are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They’re also high in antioxidants that protect your body from free radical damage and chronic disease. Sweet potatoes contain fiber and antioxidants that promote the growth of good gut bacteria and contribute to a healthy gut. Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene and anthocyanins, antioxidants that may help prevent vision loss and improve eye health. Sweet potatoes are versatile and can be prepared in both sweet and savory dishes, making them an exceptional carb option for most people.
