This is an entirely new take on sweet potatoes, and I know you'll enjoy it, I can't stop eating it! This recipe came to me by accident, I was looking for something new on the internet that I could make with sweet potatoes on the stove top but couldn't find anything. I threw together some ingredients I had on hand, and the result was great. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and cube the sweet potatoes.
  2. Boil in water until tender, drain and rinse pot.
  3. Melt butter and marshmallows in pot on low heat, 45 seconds.
  4. Add ginger and stir. Turn off heat.
  5. Fold in potatoes until completely coated.
  6. Add yogurt, fold into potatoes.
  7. The result should be a little creamy, with large chunks of potatoes. Serve at room temperature.

Hey..where is the 10 star button? These were delish, I really liked the yogurt/ginger flavor. We're in the RV, so I used canned yams this time, but when I get back home I'll try this with the real thing. Made for TYM tag!!! Keep up the good work, amb58.
