Taylor's Mashed Sweet Potatoes
For those who love mashed potatoes but are trying to eat foods lower on the Glycemic Index, mashed sweet potatoes are great. They can be prepared with non-dairy cream cheese, for people who are leaning toward plant-based cuisine. It’s the chives that add color to the flavor. And speaking of color, the color of the mashed sweet potatoes themselves makes a visual treat for holiday dinners.
- 6 medium sweet potatoes
- 1 cup fresh chopped chives
- 1 tsp sea salt or Himalayan salt
- Pinch of nutmeg
- ¼ tsp white pepper, if desired
Scrub sweet potatoes well.
Place sweet potatoes on a cookie sheet, prick the top with a sharp knife, and bake in oven pre-heated to 350 degrees F. for 45-50 minutes until soft.
Remove from oven. Let stand for 5 minutes, then remove skins (cutting off ends or spots as needed) and place in a large bowl.
Using an old-fashioned potato masher or an electric masher, mash potatoes well.
Add chives and seasonings. Mash well.
Place in a greased casserole and return to oven pre-heated to 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven.
Serve and enjoy.
