Baking the sweet potatoes concentrates their natural sweetness. Couple that with naturally sweet pineapple and you've got a delicious, 2-ingredient side dish.

Ingredients

Uncooked sweet potato(es)

4 small, washed and dried

Canned pineapple packed in juice

15¼ oz, crushed, drained

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Place potatoes directly on middle rack of oven. Bake, checking for doneness by either gently squeezing potatoes or pricking them with a fork to see if they’re really soft, about 40 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and cool for 5 minutes more.
  4. Scrape potato flesh from skin into a large bowl. Add drained pineapple chunks and mash with a potato masher or spoon until pineapple has broken down slightly, about 2 to 3 minutes. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.
