    This was SO good! I used 1 sweet potato and a big chunk of butternut squash instead of the 2 potatoes just cuz that’s what I had on hand. I just saw a video discussing turmeric and how incredible it is for you this morning so I had to use it! I had grass fed beef burgers with the potatoes/squash – YUM!! Thanks! 🙂

    I love the tumeric/ ginger combination! How do you get them crispy? I covered mine. We also had sauteed chicken thighs and garlic-lemon kale over white rice.

      They won’t get crispy if you cover them, John. The cover sets up more of a steamer cooking method. Cook uncovered in a single layer. That should produce the results you are looking for.
