Tempura is a popular Japanese dish consisting of battered and fried seafood and vegetables. It is light and lacy, different than the typical heavily-fried items we find in the states. It is a unique and fun way to get your family to eat vegetables and seafood.
Make an assortment of mini hamburgers for a party or a fun family meal. Lay out a smorgasbord of toppings and let everyone build their own slider. Serve the mini burgers with fruit salad, potato salad, french fries or sweet potato fries.
I like serving mashed sweet potatoes and yams instead of mashed potatoes with most meals. They have more water than regular potatoes so I find that I use less milk and butter to get the creamy texture that we like. And the yams especially add a great pop of color to any plate!
Sweet potato fries are a yummy alternative to standard French fries. I like using a combination of sweet potatoes and yams to get a nice mix of colors.
