  1. In a small bowl, combine water and flax meal, and let it sit for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large saucepan bring 6 cups (1 ½ L) of water to a boil, then add sweet potatoes. Cook until they are tender, about 10 minutes, then drain.

  7. Or, pan fry with a small drizzle of oil over medium-high heat until both sides are golden brown, about 10 minutes.
