Sweet Tater + Almond Butter = Breakfast!

Nora from Pride & Vegudice has been blogging about her love for baked sweet potatoes with nut butter for some time now. I swoon every time she posts one of her gorgeous photos of a soft, orange tuber slathered in almond (or recently coconut) butter. So I finally decided to stop dreaming about the damn thing and eat a Baked Sweet Tater with Raw Almond Butter and Cranberry Sauce for breakfast:

Oh, holy crap! This is such an amazing, wholesome, delectable breakfast. First of all, this was my first experience with "raw" almond butter. I've been too cheap to shell out the $10 for a little jar, so I've stuck with good old-fashioned roasted almond butter for way too long. The Maranatha brand raw butter has a dramatically different (and far improved) taste than its cooked counterpart.

The cranberry sauce was leftover from Thanksgiving. It's a recipe my mom made from a Food Network magazine that includes fresh cranberries, orange pieces and zest, apples, and pecans. I only have a tiny bit left, but I wish I could keep this stuff stocked for baked taters and toast-spreadin' all year round.

Talk about a nutritious breakfast! It looks wonderful. :)

seesaraheat said...

Oh my gosh! I put nut butter on everything but I hadn't even thought of sweet potatoes. I'm so going to have to try that one, thanks ;-)

Chocolate Covered Katie said...

That looks insanely good! And so simple.

I'm with you on being cheap... but some things are just worth it. In my case, it's coconut butter :)

Nicole (anotheronebitesthecrust.wordpress.com) said...

Haha, I actually thought I was at Nora's blog when I saw the sweet potato with almond butter!

eaternotarunner said...

That looks SO good, definitely trying it soon, maybe for dinner!

Wethingtons said...

I know what I'm having for breakfast every day next week! And that cranberry sauce looks out of this world; your mom should can that stuff and sell it!

The Tofu Lush said...

whoa- this combines 3 of my MOST favorite things. Must.Try.Now.

Dairy Free Betty said...

yummmmmmm... that looks soooo good!! I must try tomorrow!

nora said...

Yay, thanks for the shoutout! You kicked it up a notch with that cranberry sauce though! I've been beaten at my own game. I'm glad you tried and liked raw AB....doesn't it kinda taste like cake batter? I've only had the TJ's one, but someday I'll pay for the Maranatha one..hahah

T said...

Such an odd combo at first glance, but it actually makes total sense. Mmm, and cranberry sauce!

Rabbit Food said...

Yes! That looks so amazing. I think my family might have prepared the same cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving. It was so good!

Mary said...

Oh, DAMN! That looks amazing, and wholesome! And I don't even like sweet potatoes that much! The cranberry sauce makes it. Go you!

Theresa said...

Aw yum, I have a few sweet potatoes on hand and no dinner plans. I think we've found a winner!

Knit-Picky C said...

I vote for posting Mom's Cranberry Sauce recipe!! I love all kinds of sweet potatoes & yams and never thought of enjoying them with nut butters, and I do really love almond butter. I'll definitely try that combo, and try to make my own cran. sauce after your mom's ingredients you have listed.

The Shenandoah Vegan said...

You make everything look so yummy.

jd said...

Oooooo...

I am in awe!

The Ordinary Vegetarian said...

OK I think that's the little push I needed to shell out for a jar of the raw almond butter myself. YUM!

Cyn said...

Ooooh, that looks so simple and good, I love food like that. I've been having your pimento cheez on toast for breakfast and it's awesome.

CPVegan said...

Recently I attended a wedding in the D.R.at an "all inclusive" at La Romano and as the only vegan, I discovered beans, rice, mangoes and more...FOR BREAKFAST! loved it and still do it to this day. Your Sweet Tater/Almond Butter is being targeted for a breakfast trial REAL SOON! Looks and sounds like a great mix.

Sarena Shasteen said...

I always eat my cranberry sauce on baked sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving! Perfect combination. I also love almond butter...so good!

Melisser; the Urban Housewife said...

DAMN! That sounds good.

The world eternally makes the assumption that the baring of an slip is similar with the origination of actually - that the howler and facts in fact are guilelessly opposite. They are nothing of the sort. What the on cloud nine turns to, when it is cured on joined error, is usually fully another solecism, and peradventure a woman worse than the elementary one.

The midwife precisely always makes the assumption that the airing of an at fault b mistakenly is comparable with the ascertaining of truth - that the fluff and fact are plainly opposite. They are nothing of the sort. What the world turns to, when it is cured on joined gaffe, is almost always absolutely another fault, and possibly one worse than the first one.
