It’s finals time around here–so I turn to quick meals I can munch on while studying! That means there is not time to preheat an oven, break out a blender or heat up a sauce pan. Instead, I like to turn to the trusty little microwave to handle my cooking needs.

my little friend

I may be a little late on this, but I just recently found out that you can microwave a sweet potato! SAY WHAT!

Cinnamon-Spice 5 minute Sweet Potato

  • 1 sweet potato, whole
  • sprinkles of cinnamon and/or apple pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp. Earthbalance butter
  • Optional: almond butter, walnuts, brown sugar

Poke your sweet potato with a fork a few times and wrap it in a damp paper towel. Microwave for 4-5 minutes, depending on size. I like to turn it halfway through. When done, place in a bowl and cut in half. But watch out! It’s gonna be blazin’ HOT! With a fork, mush your butter and spices into the potato. Feel free to add in any fun mix-ins!

Sweet and simple–my kind of snack! ๐Ÿ™‚

Well I have an interview this morning–I’m off to get primped and prepped!

Much love,

Kath xoxox
