Sweet potato recipes have historically been very time-intensive procedures. However, all it takes is a mandolin slicer to turn this classic American-Southern Soul Food ingredient into a fixing for a sandwich or wrap. Even better … it only requires 20 minutes of cooking. It’s so easy that no recipe is required. It’s as easy as cooking bacon but not as messy and much healthier.
Many mandolin slicers exist, so once you find the one you like you can try this easy idea. Simply peel your sweet potato, brush both sides with a little olive oil. Sprinkle each side with a dash of salt. Then, over medium heat grill each side for 10 minutes and you’re done. Each side will caramelize and the interior will be moist and sweet. You can make these in batches and store them in the refrigerator for a few days. Definitely consider adding this vegan-friendly, meat-like sandwich fixing to your diet if you’re trying to cut down on your meat intake.
