Our favorite sweet potato recipe is one that requires firing up the grill. But since the temperature these days have been close to freezing, this mashed sweet potato recipe is a sweet alternative. Plus, it’s super easy to make–great for moms of newborn babies, working moms, all moms, and pretty much everyone else!
- 4 medium size sweet potatoes
- 1/2 c low fat sour cream
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
Peel the potatoes and cut into large chunks. Place in a saucepan and cover with water. Boil for 20-30 minutes, or until soft.
Drain the water. Add the sour cream and mash. Stir in the green onions and serve.
Instead of the green onions, stir in some crushed raw or toasted walnuts. That gives it a rich, warm, earthy flavor while the green onions remind us of the summer. We like both!
