Sweet Potato Tots

I’m taking my love for sweet potatoes to a whole new level!

Sweet potatoes are seriously ones of my favourite foods ever – I could eat them everyday. Packed with vitamin A and tons of other nutrients, they are a staple in my dietary lifestyle.

These tots are quite easy to make and so fun to eat too! You can dip them in hummus,  a yogurt dip, hot pepper sauce, or do as I did and enjoy them with avocado crema (crema is Italian for cream).

You NEED to make these guys! They make a fun bite-sized appetizer or side dish for entertaining. These would also be perfect for a Super Bowl party.
