Bros, I know I should be eating these shits but I can't find a way of cooking them that makes them tolerable. How do you cook duh sweet potatoes?
This thread is living proof that /fit/izens can't cook.
Sweet potatos are easy as shit, and absolutely delicious.
Slice them into fries, line them up on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet with no overlap, sprinkle VERY lightly with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and whatever other seasoning your heart desires (I personally also use paprika and garlic powder) then pop it in the oven until crispy on the edges and soft on the inside.
Bro if they are undercooked or overcooked they are pretty bad. After a certain period(after 40 minutes of baking on 400) you have to check it every few minutes with a knife, if it cuts like butter it'll taste like heaven. If you overcook it it gets hard and dry again so watch out
Also I've found that low-tier grocery stores have less tasty sweet potatoes. Get them from costco or something.
>fitizens cant cook
>alluminum foil & baking sheets
>olive oil for baking
You're a retard.
There is nothing wrong with baking with olive oil, and I'd love for you to prove to me otherwise. It lends a nice flavor to the sweet potato, as well as providing it with healthier fats than other oils.
>alluminum foil & baking sheets
Are you trolling me? Do you want to scrub hardened shit off of a baking sheet?
I love me some sweet potatoes
Dice into approx 1" cubes.
Coat a pan with some olive oil, put potatoes in with some diced garlic and onions
Stir well, to get an even coating of oil onto everything.
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cook at 350 for 1 hour or more.
They are wonderful that way.
Mashed Sweet potatoes are also great
Cube them 1" cubes or so
Boil in salted water for 10-20 minutes, until potatos are tender
Drain all water out
Mash with anything really, they should fall apart.
Season either savory or sweet
Savory seasoning: paprika, garlic salt, pepper, maybe some cayenne, if dry use about 1/2 cup milk to add some volume
Sweet Seasoning: cinnamon, butter, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk (about 1/2 cup) some sugar or brown sugar if its in the macros for the day
Its another one!
Sweet potato fries!
Cut into fries shape
Heat up about 1-2 tbps coconut oil
Place onto baking sheet, no salt/seasoning yet
Bake at 400 - 425 for about 15 minutes take them out, flip them all and back in for 15 minutes
Turn off the oven and let them cool in the oven for another 10 minutes maybe.
Take them out and season them
I like just salt on these, and they don't need to be dipped into anything IMO
>A popular misconception is that olive oil should not be used for frying because of their low smoke point. As you can see, that is not always the case. The reason some chefs don’t always use olive oil for frying is that imparts its strong flavor, unlike canola or soybean oils.
I've been cooking sweet potatoes with olive oil for years, and they're crispy and delicious. I dunno what you want, m8.
While it is in most likely safe amounts for consumption, I can't see how using a sheet of aluminum foil is somehow bad or indicates a lack of cooking ability.
The smoke point of olive oil is higher than any reasonable oven temperature. Remember that your food doesn't hit the same temp as the oven.
>"Moist sweet potato varieties sweeten during cooking thanks to the action of an enzyme that attacks starch and breaks it down. The enzyme starts to make maltose when the tightly packed starch granules absorb moisture and expand, beginning around 135°F, and it stops when the rising heat denatures it, at around 170°F."
For the same info.
>get water to between 135 and 170 F (57-76 C)
>put in sweet potatoes (might want to use zip top bag with no air)
>for at least 1 hour
this makes them sweeter than they would otherwise be
After making them sweet, you need to soften to do that, you bake them like you normally would. Personally, I've never done it this way because I like their flavor when just baked, but if you don't like it and want to try sweetening them give it a shot.
0. Preheat your Jew Hotel to 400F
1. Peel those fuckers like they're your bitch
2. Cube those motherfuckers
3. Toss them with olive oil, salt, pepper, cinnamon, and a little honey (in a bag, not like tossing salad you fucking faggot)
4. Put those oily shits in a glass baking dish
5. Let them burn in the oven for 40 minutes
6. Take them out, let them cool, and then serve them to your slut gf and she'll let you go ass to mouth
microwave them bitchs for like 7 minutes
but if yuo want somthing tastey
boil a few of them in water with vegetable stock till its super soft then either put it in a blender/food processor or use a hand blender
and blend into a delicious soup shits got tier add salt,pepper and cyanne pepper
add other veggies too if you want
Try this method, I use this for red potatoes and they are amazing.
Cut potatoes in half then quarter them
Place in skillet and add enough water to almost cover potatoes
Add olive oil and 1 tbs of butter to water
Turn on med high heat, let water boil off
Add spices and seasoning of choice
The oil will make a nice crispy crust and the inside is still meaty
This is probably one of the easiest foods in the world to make. And it always tastes good so you are either doing some majorly retarded shit to your potatoes or you have shit taste.
You can poke a few holes with a fork and cook it directly on your oven rack for about an hour. Literally dont have to do anything else. Syrup will be oozing out of the holes by the end. Add butter or salt if you have to.
Another way is what I do with all vegetables: chop into one inch cubes, toss in oil, salt, pepper and whatever else you have around (garlic powder, red pepper flakes, even coriander is good). Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes, flip them and bake another 10. For veggies like broccoli and other things less dense than potatoes you will need to flip them sooner.
Step up your veggie game son, it's simple. Since veggies take the longest, do them first then grill your meat while you wait
Raw sweet potatoes contain an enzyme inhibitor that blocks the action of trypsin, an enzyme that digests proteins. The trypsin inhibitor prevents the digestion of protein.Sweet potatoes have more of the trypsin inhibitor. This makesraw sweet potatodifficult to digest. Cooking negates the inhibitors.
You don't fucking have to eat them you cunt. Their nutritional value is pretty much the same as regular potatoes. I only eat them because I get sick of always eating bland ass potatoes so the sweet potatoes are good for a change.
boil it with some of this, brown cane sugar (not too much obviously). Delicious, sweet and soft like mashed potatoes.
I dice sweet potatoes and red/russets and throw them in olive oil.
Lots of black pepper
Throw that in the oven. Sometimes I add onions. Brussels sprouts are good in there too.
Shit's great. Eat it with a pork chop if you want. Sometimes I just throw a fried egg on top.
Fry them. Cut them thick like steak fries and use organic lard- this will brown the potatoes nicely and you won't be adding too much fat to the potatoes since you're cutting the fries thick.
