Expert Tips

"Sweet potatoes are always on our family table at Thanksgiving, and we like to add savory spices to balance the natural sweetness. This version with a Moroccan-style spice mix has lots of warm flavor. For a different taste, try an Indian-style spice mix with ginger, coriander and cumin." - Andrea Meyers
