Sometimes I forget just how good for you sweet potatoes are, they taste like such a treat! The nice thing about sweet potatoes is that you can have the luxury of making them savory or into a sweet dessert. The further we dive into understanding what foods can cause inflammation in the body, knowing that not all potatoes and tubers are created equally is a great little golden nugget.
Sweet potatoes are packed with vitamins, minerals and healthy fiber. This can help to promote good gut health and a better functioning body, overall. In this yummy hash blend, we are going to combine sweet potatoes with our Chicory Cacao Rub.
Give your dish a kick!
Spice up your meal with a little kick from this smoky Chicory and Cacao infused blackening seasoning. Grill or pan or sprinkled on popcorn, it gives whatever you grab a little kick!
This blend is a great play on a classic blackening seasoning with some added depth from our plant friends Chicory and Cacao. It’s smoky and bright, bursting with flavor from chiles, garlic and thyme, and a little added sweetness from powdered Anise, no added sugar! This seasoning is a perfect dry marinade for the grill or pan and works well on all lots of things like tempeh, tofu, buttered corn and veggies, steak, chicken, etc. It’s also tasty off the grill, swirled into a mayo for your burger, or to spice up some creamy pasta.
All of these recipes have been created as healthy alternatives to add to your favorite dish list. Just a simple reminder that food is medicine. What we put into our bodies is what we get out of them. For more details about the full anti-inflammatory diet, download here.
