I'm impressed. I have never ever cooked sweet potatoes before, only ever eaten them once before...so the recipe looked easy, so I thought I would try it. The hardest part was peeling the dang thing...a turnip is easier!! End result, I'm happy with it, I didn'think I would like it, but it's good & I will make it often. What I did though, was I substituted the cajun spice with Mrs. Dash, Extra Spicy. I opted for that, because when I was shopping for cajun, I couldn't find any that didn't have sugar in the ingredience...but Mrs. Dash is pure spices, no sugar or salt. I have NOOOO idea what this potato would taste like with a cajun spice. TIP: stir the potato occassionally while it's boiling & simmering, so the potato doesn't stick & burn to the bottom of the pot.

with me and my family being vegetarians,we cook with a lot of potatos, and this is just so simple, but it can be spiced up to your taste with some seasoned salts or cajan spices. also, it's easy enough for an everyday meal.
