Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Mashed Sweet Potatoes have the same texture of traditional mashed potatoes, but contain more flavor and none of the anti-nutrients of their white counterparts.
Sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C, and other minerals and antioxidants. They can improve eye health, fight inflammation, heal the gut, and more. Use in place of mashed white potatoes for gatherings, or pair with your favorite animal protein for a hearty dinner:
4 large sweet potatoes
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Pecans, for toppings
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Wrap sweet potatoes in aluminum foil, then pierce each one several times with a fork.
Place potatoes on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 45-50 minutes until soft.
Unwrap foil from potatoes and allow to cool enough to touch. Scoop out the flesh into a large bowl and discard the skin.
Add coconut oil, cinnamon, and nutmeg to the bowl. With a large fork or potato masher, mash until ingredients are mixed well. Sprinkle with pecans before serving.
