Mashed Sweet Potatoes

As we all know, sweet potatoes is a healthier choice over white potatoes. Sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Vitamin D, Iron, and Magnesium.

So any day when I crave for potatoes, this alternative vegetable definitely becomes my top choice. I utilize sweet potatoes as double baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, baked french fries, also them in my lentil soup. Just amazing vegetable!

For this recipe you won’t need too many ingredients.

Ingredients:

1 Sweet potato (scrub the skin and wash it well)

1 teaspoon of maple syrup (or 1 tablespoon of brown sugar)

1 pinch of salt & 1 pinch of pepper.

1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice

1 or 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream

1/2 teaspoon of butter (add more if you want to increase the richness)

Drizzle on top (Optional):

1/2 teaspoon of maple syrup

Crushed black pepper

Method:

I usually bake sweet potato in microwave using potato setting. It is a quicker and an easier method. You can also boil them in pot full of water or foil bake the sweet potatoes in oven at 375 for 60 minutes.

Now scope all the goodness and add all the ingredients. Mash everything and make it creamy.

Serve warm with a drizzle of maple syrup and black pepper.
