Sautéed Peanut Roasted Sweet Potatoes came about because I had purchased a mountain of sweet potatoes and I just needed to consume them. Sweet potatoes are versatile – they can be eaten raw, baked, boiled and sautéed. I love them.

This recipe is absolutely delicious! We love sweet potatoes anyway but it made a great change and the lime gives it a lovely tang. I will definitely be making it lots more.
