Most Helpful Review

Mirjam you are truely Zaar's sweet potato Maven ! The roasting intensifies the sweet potato flavor so that it is the perfect foil for the black and cayenne pepper. The garlic adds another layer of flavor and a bit of crunch. Next time I think I'll add a bit of rosemary and serve it with lamb, then maybe thyme, for a roast beef _ how about some sage with pork and then ------ See all activity
