Sweet Potato Mash

Sweet potato mash topped with chopped pecans

Well, I had some sweet potatoes that I needed to get rid off before we leave for our trip and I didn’t feel like eating our usual carbs for dinner last night. So I thought this would be a nice different dish. This is rather experimental. Basically, you boil the sweet potatoes till soft, remove the skin. Add a tbspoon of butter, 2 tablespoon of maple syrup, juice and zest from 1 orange, a dash of nutmeg, a dash of cinnamon, a splash of soy milk and mash with a masher. Add more soy milk according to the consistency you like (I guess you can add milk if you drink milk, but we don’t). Salt to taste.

Put chopped toasted pecans on top. Bake in oven for 20 min. Serve.

This is a great dish for snow days. Yummy!
