This recipe can be made with any kind of sweet potato (white, orange, or blue). You can also easily substitute another spice blend for the vegetable spice, like Ethiopian Berberé, Cajun spice, herbes de Provence or Chinese 5-spice.
2 lb sweet potatoes
1 Tbsp Vegetable Spice blend, ground
¼ nutmeg, grated fine
Salt to taste
3 medium onions
2-3 cups meat stock
6 Tbsp duck fat or coconut oil
Cube the potatoes into 1 inch pieces. Season with vegetable spice, nutmeg, and salt.
Slice the onions and place on a roasting pan. Place the potatoes over the onions.
Bring the stock to a boil. Pour over the potatoes with the duck fat.
Place in an oven that has been heated to 375 °F and cook for about an hour, until the potatoes have absorbed the stock and are very soft.
