Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are considered to be a super food. They can take the place of a starch in a balanced meal, but are healthier than white potatoes, white rice or pasta.

Mashed sweet potatoes

3 medium sweet potatoes
1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. butter or butter substitute (I use Smart Balance)
1 tbsp. low-fat cream cheese
1 tsp. of either honey or brown sugar
Dash of Nutmeg
1 tbsp. low-fat milk
Salt & pepper

1) Peel sweet potatoes and cut into large chunks.

2) Heat kettle of water to boiling, add tsp of butter to water. Add sweet potato chunks and boil uncovered about 10 minutes or until fork tender. Please check the potatoes after about 5 minutes because cooking time will vary depending on how big the chunks are.

3) Drain sweet potatoes and return to the kettle you cooked them in. Add remaining ingredients and mash with a potato masher until creamy and smooth.

Allow one sweet potato for each person. Make extra for leftovers.
