Many people are surprised that this delicious vegetable can be part of sweet recipes, but it’s all about how you dress it up. I like mine served with a delicious, buttery concoction of melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. You can also mix in raisins, walnuts or pecans for a nice chewy and crunchy texture. To make a vegan version, just use vegan butter. You can also play around and use less butter and sugar, adjust to your taste.
