Mashed Sweet Potatoes: Delicious and Nutritious

“Delicious” and “Nutritious” are usually seen driving different cars, and going in opposite directions. But with Mashed Sweet Potatoes, they can be seen carpooling together on the road towards your dinner plate. 

Sweet potatoes are nutrient dense. Their bright orange color indicates a high amount of beta-carotene, which our body converts to Vitamin A. They are also great sources of dietary fiber, potassium, and vitamin B-6. Another great thing about sweet potatoes is that they are not only nutritious, but also have some substance and can fill you up when you’re hungry. 

Their natural sweetness make them a great accompaniment to many dishes.  They also work great in desserts, like sweet potato pie. I love Mashed Sweet Potatoes because there are not many meals that are not enhanced by having this fluffy mound of goodness on the same plate.

    Cooking times for sweet potatoes can vary depending on the size of the sweet potato. Use a fork to check when they are done. If you can easily mash the cubed sweet potato with a fork, it is ready to put in the food processor.

    Food processors can easily break down sweet potatoes, or any other vegetable, into a creamy delicious texture that requires no chewing. No need to fuss with mashers and hand mixers, let a food processor do the work for you!
