Cranberry Sweet Potato with Pomogranate
Sweet Potatoes are very high in vitamin A, which is supposed to be good for immune function. Cranberries and Pomergranate are healthy as well. You could also substitute pumpkin or any kind of squash for the sweet potato. This recipe doesn’t use any sugar or salt, but you could add some natural applesauce if you want a sweetener.
1/2 medium sweet potato
2 teaspoons extra light olive oil (such as Carapelli’s)
1/2 cup raw cranberries, fresh or frozen
1 teaspoon fresh pomegranate seeds (optional)
Cut one sweet potato in half, and put one half in a microwave safe dish. Cook in the microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave, be careful if it is hot. Cut the sweet potato into medium-size chunks, pour olive oil over them and stir. Add the cranberries and pomogrante seeds, return to microwave and cook for an additional minute, or until it is done to the consistency that you like. Makes one serving.
Note: If you don’t have a microwave, all of this could be done in the oven or the stovetop, it just takes longer.
