I need to get back to this low-GI diet I’m supposed to be on so took a baby step yesterday by buying sweet potatoes instead of normal potatoes. Potatoes are high-GI and sweet potatoes are not, apparently.
It’s embarrassing to admit but I’ve never bought a sweet potato in my life before. “Do you know what it is?” I asked the husband, waving a raw, peeled sweet potato at him. “A carrot?” he responded hopefully. “No? Maybe a turnip?”
Anyway, I didn’t really know what to do with it so chopped it into chunks, drizzled those with olive oil and sprinkled over sea salt and black pepper and baked the lot for 45 mins at 200C. They were nice if unexciting. Soft and sweet and slightly caramelised around the edges.
There are five more sweet potatoes downstairs and I need to find something to do with them that will go with lamb chops tonight. Something that will render them a little more tasty, ideally. Time to hit Google…I will report back.
