SWEET POTATOES AND TOTS RECIPE
Sweet Potatoes: An important glucose and glycogen storage food for the liver. All sweet potatoes and yams are beneficial, even white sweet potatoes. Similar to regular potatoes, they help support almost every function for which the liver is responsible inside our bodies. Sweet potatoes have phytochemical properties that calm heated, angry, stagnant, sluggish, and toxic livers and help prevent spasming. They also offer a range of hormone-balancing phytochemicals for the liver; the liver uses sweet potatoes and yams to regulate and control some of its hormone functions.
Sweet Potato Tots Recipe
2 medium-sized sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon dried herbs such as oregano, thyme, or rosemary
6 ounces pure tomato paste (find one without additives or salt)
1/3 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons raw honey
1/4 teaspoon dried onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C.
Add 3 inches of water to a medium-sized pot, bring it to a boil, and add a steaming basket. Place the sweet potatoes in the basket, cover, and steam for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender on the outside yet firm in the middle. Remove from heat and cool completely.
Remove the skins from the sweet potatoes and grate them using the large side of a box grater. Place the grated sweet potato into a bowl and add the herbs. Mix until combined.
Use a tablespoon to scoop the mixture, and then use your hands to form the tots into small cylinders.
Place the tots on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, flipping them halfway through, until browned. For a crispier tot, turn the heat up to 400°F/ 200°C for the last 10 minutes of baking. Let the tots cool for 5 to 10 minutes before eating.
To make the ketchup, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Serve with tots.
