Ingredients

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes

Instructions

  • Wash your sweet potatoes really well. Those little buggers can be quite dirty, so really scrub them clean. And leave them wet.  Not dripping wet, just however wet they are from washing them. The moisture will help in the cooking process. 
  • Using a knife or fork, puncture the clean sweet potatoes skin multiple times. Don’t go crazy, but if you’ve had a rough day, feel free to take it out on your potatoes. Just try to leave the potatoes in one piece after you’re done.
  • Arrange the sweet potatoes in your slow cooker in a single layer. This is a great opportunity to put those Tetris skills from your youth to good use in this practical, very adult manner (and your mom said you’d never learn anything form video games).
  • Cook on low for 6-7 hours or high for 3-4 hours. You’ll know they are done when you can easily puncture the skin of the potato with a fork
  • Yeah, that’s it. Now go eat your sweet potatoes with something tasty like mashed avocados or black beans. Or both. Okay, now I’m drooling.

Notes

  • If your slow cooker is smaller, you might have to adjust how many potatoes you use based on the size of your slow cooker.  
  • Wash your sweet potatoes really well. 
  • If you prefer to cook on low, you will need to wait for 6-7 hours as opposed to 3-4 hours on high.
