There’s something intrinsically appealing about a pile of delicious-looking food. Even though you may be envisioning a heap of nachos right now, know that it’s entirely possible to create a “pile-style” meal or snack that delights your taste buds and nourishes your body. It’s all about the ingredients. In place of chips, you might use sweet potatoes as base. Instead of sour cream or cheese sauce, you might choose Greek yogurt. And rather than piling on the salt, create mouthwatering flavor with spices like smoked paprika, tart lemon juice, and pungent scallions. This is not hypothetical — we tried it, and the results were fantastic! Our Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Yogurt and Pepitas will satisfy your friends and family in the best way: with complex, delicious flavor; an array of nutrients; and a balance of nourishing protein, fats, and fiber-rich whole carbs.
