Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Prep: 15 minutes Cook: 45 minutes
- 3 pounds sweet potatoes
- 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
- 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
- dash salt
- freshly ground pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Scrub potatoes and prick all over with a fork. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and allow the potatoes to cool slightly.
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh into a large bowl. Mash with a hand masher or electric beater (do not use a food processor). Add non-dairy milk, maple syrup and seasonings. Mix well.
Hint: These may be prepared a day or two ahead of time and refrigerated. Reheat in a microwave before serving. These may also be peeled and cooked in water on the stovetop. Drain off cooking water and mash as directed above.
