A Christmas Sweet Potato Dip for All the Boys and Girls? Take the Poll.

A Christmas Sweet Potato Dip for All the Boys and Girls? Take the Poll.

I have a theory that men don’t like sweet potatoes. None of the men in my life like them anyway.

I took to Twitter to test my theory and discovered that quite a few men actually do like sweet potatoes, especially the famous Christmastime sweet potato with marshmallows. But I’m still not convinced that the majority of boys will eat one of those deliciously orange veggies.

Last weekend I made a few holiday dips for friends, one of which was a fine sweet potato dip. I tempted my favorite sweet-potato hater (my husband, Jason) with the dip, but he still didn’t like it. Can you believe he doesn’t even like a savory sweet potato? It’s the holidays for Pete’s sake!

Help me prove (or disprove my theory) by taking part in my sweet potato poll. If you think the answer “depends,” then please do explain in the comments. It’s time to get to the bottom of this theory.

Recipe for Sweet Potato and Tahini Dip

Inspired by MyRecipes.com

*1 large yam (We call them sweet potatoes in the US. They’re not exactly the same thing, but close enough.)

*2 tbsp. tahini

*2 tsp. soy sauce

*2 tsp. fresh ginger

*5 green onions (whites), chopped

*Toasted sesame seeds

Directions: Cut the yam in one inch cubes and boil for 20 minutes. Drain but reserve 1/4 cup of the water. Place water, yams, and the next three ingredients in a food processor. Puree until smooth. Spoon into a serving bowl and top with onions and sesame seeds. Serve warm with Triscuits.

    I’m trying to think if I know a man who doesn’t like sweet potatoes. I don’t think I do. But the sweet potatoes I’ve seen most people eat are the marshmallow-topped ones you mentioned.

    Looks like I might be wrong! While that’s tough to take, I’m glad to be wrong about sweet potatoes. Everybody should eat them!

    My husband likes sweet potatoes more than I do…he eats one almost everyday! And I know he would LOVE this dip. I need to get some more tahini though. We are almost out! Thank you for sharing your recipe with me. I hope you have a splendid Saturday and Sunday.

  5. In my house, the boys definitely like sweet potato, the savoury kind. It’s one of my daughters who doesnt’ like it!
