Quinoa, sweet potatoes,  turmeric (curcuma) and sesame are all super foods, and they are ingredients of those amazing bite size snack. I like them warm, but they are perfectly fine cold as well. I made them quite spicy, because I like spicy food, and my significant other is a total nut for curry and strong, spicy cuisine. The more it burns, the more he enjoys it. I mean for real, I like strong stuff, but when I am in the state that I can’t feel my tongue, my nose is running and my tears are falling like I am a hysterical 5-year-old. He is completely fine with it and can handle the burn like nothing is happening. So if you are not the biggest fan of the numb tongue, I suggest you use a smaller amount of cayenne pepper.

It is very easy to make. Just process raw sweet potatoes in a high speed blender.
