Cumin Lime Smashed Sweet Potatoes

Cumin Lime Smashed Sweet Potatoes

Brighten up your table with our fresh take on sweet potatoes. We like the skin on for extra fiber and the cumin and lime are a refreshing addition to this otherwise hearty side dish. Despite their name, sweet potatoes are low on the glycemic index and are loaded with essential vitamins and nutrients.
