Healthy? You could easily substitute coconut sugar for the brown sugar and coconut oil for the margarine. Much better for you and just as good if not better tasting. Shalom Reply

Other variations Instead of the margarine I would suggest to use coconut oil (maybe even 2tbsp - naturally dairy free and much healthier).
Also omitting the sugar would work as the potatoes are already sweet by mother nature. Although a sprinkle of brown sugar will add some crunch on top. Reply

SWEET POTATOES 1. Why is this dish classified as Moroccan?

2. Margarine? Not a healthy start-off to a new year.

3. 1/2 cup of sugar? No, no, no Reply
