WHIPPED SWEET POTATOES
Just about every time I make these, someone asks me if I added any maple syrup or brown sugar. I never do. Everyone is always surprised at just how sweet sweet potatoes can be all on their own.
FYI, they do tend to be sweeter than yams.
2 large sweet potatoes
sea salt to taste
Directions: Boil sweet potatoes until fork tender, about 20 minutes, drain, and puree until smooth and creamy with a hand blender. Add butter and salt to taste and serve piping hot.
Try This: Substitute any root veggie or winter squash, such as beets, parsnips, yams, sunchokes, rutabagas, turnips, carrots, acorn squash, delicate squash, pumpkins, and butternut squash.
Health Tip: Where there is color, there are nutrients. Sweet potatoes are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B6, and potassium, and a very good source of vitamin A from beta-carotene, vitamin C, and manganese.
