Sweet Potato & Roasted Grape Crostini

January 16, 2015

Recently, I have come to fully realize my love for sweet potatoes. I adore them roasted and tossed into a salad. As a person who needs a dash of sweet in just about every dish, they often come to the rescue.

And, they are a healthier option for sweet since many identify sweet potato as a superfood. (Although I read an article I would tend to agree with on why there is no such thing as a superfood.) Regardless, this appetizer just gets me.
