Recipe source: One Green Planet, Serves 2, Vegetarian, GDRx Veggie Week

  • Dried parsley (1⁄4 tsp)
  • Turmeric (1⁄4 tsp)
  • Paprika
  • 4 Sweet potatoes
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • Dried basil (1⁄4 tsp)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Thoroughly scrub the sweet potatoes with water, then dry. Use a fork to poke a few sets of holes into each sweet potato, then wrap each of them with a double layer of aluminum foil. Add the wrapped sweet potatoes onto a baking pan and bake for 45 minutes.
  3. Mince the cloves of garlic.
  4. When the sweet potatoes are done cooking (the center will be soft), add them to a blender or food processor and run on high until very creamy.
  5. Then add the minced garlic, 1⁄2 TBS of olive oil, dried basil, dried parsley, turmeric, a dash of paprika, and a dash of salt. Blend on low until the flavors combine.
  6. Enjoy with any additional toppings or sides of your choice.
