Cinnamon Mashed Sweet Potatoes
This is one of my favorite recipes ever! It’s always a hit at holidays and dinner parties. I’m convinced that beta-carotene rich foods like sweet potatoes and pumpkin give my skin a healthy golden-glow.
Curried Mashed Sweet Potatoes
This recipe is based on The 52 New Foods Challenge by Jennifer Tyler Lee a must have cook book for your family!
Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods and a staple in my diet, for their numerous health benefits. I batch bake my potatoes and use them in different recipes over three days. As a busy working mom, I rarely get to bake potatoes and eat them the same evening! I usually bake them late at night while working, so I have them the next few days enjoyed as different dishes. I individually wrap sweet potatoes in tin foil as it traps in the moisture and keeps in all that natural sweetness from seeping out. Plus the skins will easily separate from the meat of the potato when baked this way. I used coconut cream with this recipe, because I opened a can to use for a dessert and figured I’d try it with the sweet potatoes. I don’t usually cook with coconut cream but it’s always fun to try something new!
