Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet, nutrient-dense and mash into a wonderfully creamy concoction when blended with fat-free yogurt and a just a touch of sugar.

Ingredients

Uncooked sweet potato(es)

3 large, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks (about 2 pounds)

Garlic clove(s)

2 clove(s), medium, peeled

Plain fat free yogurt

½ cup(s), Greek variety recommended

Black pepper

pinch, freshly ground, or to taste

Sugar

4 tsp(s)

Table salt

tsp(s), or more to taste

Instructions

  1. Place potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan and pour in enough water to cover potatoes. Set pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Boil until potatoes are fork-tender, about 8 minutes.
  2. Drain potatoes and garlic; transfer potatoes and garlic to a large bowl. Add yogurt and sugar to bowl; mash until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.

Notes

Think beyond regular mashed potatoes and create a colourful addition to any dinner plate.
