For me, sweet potatoes are a Fall vegetable regardless that they can be found at grocery stores year round. There is just something so comforting about roasting sweet potatoes when the leaves are turning and the air is just crisp enough to be romantic and leave you with slightly rosy cheeks but before the harshness of winter rolls around to chap them up like sandpaper.
Even though there are at least 15 different ways you can cook sweet potatoes [roasted, steamed, mashed, hashed, sautéed] and at least 20 different types of spices you can add to sweet potatoes [cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, chili powder, rosemary, thyme, pepper, cumin, curry], I find the best way to make these for the little one is to keep it simple.

That's all it takes
All this recipes requires you to do is to turn on your oven, toss some sweet potatoes in and the most important step is to remember to take them out once you are done taking a little nap. Adding a splash of coconut milk and a pinch of coriander will give you a gold star for the day.
When sweet potatoes are combined with coconut milk you are giving your baby a hearty dose of Vitamin A and E, beta carotene, potassium, calcium, folate and iron. Not to mention, that sweet potatoes are considered one of the best solid foods you can introduce to your baby.
