The Roasted Sweet Potato Spread completes this POPOVER burger.

This is one of my newest creations that is delicious and full of nutritious ingredience.  It has your staples; fiber, protien and healthy fats.  As well as the goodness of fermented foods (the miso) and one of the worlds best anti-inflamatory ingredient, turmeric.

This is a recipe that can be altered to your taste preference as well as end use.  You can honestly serve it up as a sweet potato mash or use it as a dip or spread.  Please feel free to use a different bean or change the spices.
