Served with naan bread or raw veggies, this easy sweet potato dip makes a really great snack or a great item to bring to a potluck.
The star of this recipe, the sweet potato, is a nutrition powerhouse. Just one medium cooked sweet potato contains 4 grams of fiber, 32 percent of our daily vitamin C, and an amazing 475 percent of our daily vitamin A! Vitamin A helps our bodies maintain healthy teeth, soft tissue, and skeletal tissue, and is important for healthy vision and healthy skin. Sweet potatoes are also a good source of vitamin E, vitamin B6, potassium, manganese and magnesium.
So dig in!
