3 small sweet potatoes or 2 large
2-3 cloves garlic
2 tbsp. Olive oil
1 - 2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Wash and dry the sweet potatoes. Do NOT peel. Bake the sweet potatoes in the oven until soft. I actually prefer to bake them in the microwave for 12-14 minutes – so much easier and I LOVE easy!

2. Once the potatoes are baked thru, allow them to cool a bit and then slip the skin off and mash the flesh.

3. Add all the rest of the ingredients.

4. Voila! Very simple, very quick and very delicious Sweet Potato Appetizer.

5. I have served this with a yogurt dip and crackers and it is absolutely YUMMY!
