Meatless Monday: LA Market’s Sweet Potato
We like our potatoes the same way we like our men: hot, sweet, and loaded (yep, we just said that). But seriously, how yummy does a sweet potato stuffed with garlic, cashews, blue cheese, and cranberries sound? (Almost as good as the aforementioned man, right?!)
Well we have got one delicious dish for you to try this Meatless Monday. LA Market Restaurant by Kerry Simon at JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. Live serves up a healthy and hearty Baked and Stuffed Sweet Potato that we just can’t get enough of! And now we’re sharing the oh-so-scrumptious recipe with you!
