Sweet Potato Bites with Ricotta and Honey is a festive, skinny appetizer made with a mixture of fresh herbs, cranberries and pecans.
Sweet Potato Bites with Ricotta and Honey reminds me of a cheese board with fewer carbs.
The sweet potato, with it’s robust and sweet flavor is a great foundation for skinny apps. They can be topped with BBQ pork, avocado & bacon or loaded with sour cream & jalapenos. With Christmas on the mind, I’m so excited to join the sweet potato bites party with light ricotta cheese + pairings. The recipe is like a cheese board, but without the bread or crackers (read: LOWER CARBS!).
If you are like me, holidays are about celebrating, spending time with loves and chowing down! We make Chestnut Soup, Pineapple Cream Cheese Dip, Shrimp Cocktail and Caramelized Onion Pastry Tarts served with some bubbly. With all those carbs, I absolutely love having a lighter, veggie-based option as part of the spread for balance. Best news ever?: this recipe won’t even feel like you are being healthy.
With the cheese board as a foundation, Sweet Potato Bites with Ricotta and Honey feature a mixture of holiday pairings. Here’s how it comes together:
- Roast sweet potatoes.
- Add herbs to ricotta and add a thin layer to rounds.
- Top with cranberries and pecans.
- Add swirl of honey.
How easy is that?!
