Sweet potatoes offer important glucose and glycogen storage for the liver. All sweet potatoes and yams are beneficial, even white sweet potatoes. Similar to regular potatoes, they help support almost every function for which the liver is responsible inside our bodies. Sweet potatoes have phytochemical properties that calm heated, angry, stagnant, sluggish, and toxic livers and help prevent spasming. They also offer a range of hormone-balancing phytochemicals for the liver; the liver uses sweet potatoes and yams to regulate and control some of its hormone functions.

Herbed Sweet Potato Bake


  • 5-6 peeled and very thinly sliced sweet potatoes (about 3-4 lbs)
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp minced or finely grated garlic
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/3 cup loosely-packed parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp thyme leaves
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions and/or parsley, to serve


Preheat oven to 400F/200C.

Add the sliced sweet potato, onion powder, garlic, paprika, herbs, and lemon juice to a large mixing bowl and toss until evenly coated.

Arrange the sweet potato slices in a 9-inch square baking dish or equivalent. Pour in the water. Cover and bake for 50-60 minutes until very tender.

Remove the cover and continue cooking for 5-10 minutes until slightly browned on the top. Remove from the oven and cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Serve with fresh herbs on top.
