This recipe was off of Thekitchn, when they did an article on the different lunch options as well as different recipes using sweet potatoes. I LOVE sweet potatoes. The sweetness just can’t be beat, but it isn’t too overpowering either. I used spinach tortillas here, and then as an added bonus I used my Redi Set Go (yes As Seen on TV) to toast up the outside. The filling was a multi-step process, perhaps because I had so much filling it needed to roast a lot longer than listed. Even still the potatoes never quite got soft enough for me but I was impatient and wanted to eat. The pesto was from my local CM, but I wonder if it just was too potent. The garlic aftertaste was really strong and almost bitter, and it doesn’t send me grabbing for these wraps as eagerly as I thought I would. The concept was great, all the ingredients are ones that I love, I think the garlic though is tough to handle during the day when you are around others. I wonder if there might be another type of sauce that would be less “offensive” to others that could be substituted.
I think I would try this recipe again, but I think I would have to do something that counteracted the garlicky smell. While I personally do not mind garlic, I have to be considerate about those around me. No one likes to be around stinky people. I hate having the lingering raw garlic aftertaste in my mouth too.. I might also try different veggies/ingredients, and definitely roast those sweet potatoes so they are the consistency I like.
