"An extremely delicious, very low fat sweet potato recipe! Raisins add an extra touch of sweetness. Almost any flavor of fruit juice can be substituted for orange." — Tali

sweet potatoes, sliced
This is a very tasty, sweet potatoe recipe without using any sugar. I boiled the potatoes because some review said it took a long time to bake. I mashed them and added the orange juice and raisons and everyone loved it.
I followed the directions, and checked the potatoes after 45 minutes. Well, the ones on bottom were somewhat tender, but the ones on top were still firm. So, I had to continually rotate them and even add more orange juice. This is slightly inconvenient, especially since the main dish was already done. They tasted okay, but not good enough to do again.
instead of orange juice I cut up some oranges and added them. it took longer than 45 minutes, but came out great, especially with a little cinnamon on top.
This recipe provides a side item with a sweet flavor. Also, it is healthy food, being low-fat with antioxidant-rich sweet potatoes and raisins. I liked the recipe enough to use it twice so far. Thanks, Tali, for sharing this recipe.
I boiled the potatoes instead of baking them like other reviewers suggested and the texture was perfect. My husband and 1 year-old daughter LOVED this! I actually wasn't a big fan - it tasted too much like candy to me, so I added butter to my portion and it was fine. I made it with chicken tenders and it went well together.
I forgot to mention that I added a cinnamon blend to mine because I love the spices. Since there was no picture posted, I took a snapshot of my serving bowl before devouring the rest.
The flavors were great in this. And I was looking for a good sweet preperation for sweet potatoes without adding all of the marshmallow and brown sugar that make it more like dessert!! But like other reviewers said - the timing was wrong. I ended putting them in the mocrowave for about 5 min to try and get them done after the timing in the oven left them only half cooked. Once they were finished they were delish!
Just okay. A good healthy recipe, but too orangey for my preference.
