I don't like sweet potatoes because they always have brown sugar in them. But here a great tasting recipe without the sugar! It comes from the cookbook "Great Garlic Recipes".
- 4 large sweet potatoes, peeled &,cubed (2 pounds)
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- fresh ground pepper
- salt (optional)
- In a large pan boil sweet potatoes until tender, drain.
- Meanwhile in the same pan add butter and saute garlic until lightly browned.
- Return potatoes to pan and mash until smooth and creamy.
- Add pepper (and salt if you want) and serve immediately.
OH, WOW!!! This is the best ever way to eat sweet potatoes. I hate ruining the flavor and healthiness of sweet potatoes by adding all that sweet, sugary stuff. This is sweet potato and garlic Heaven!! I made this last night to go with baked pork chops. This is a great side dish for ANY meal (and also a good snack (as evidenced by not one bite remaining;) Hey when the midnight munchies attack, this makes a better snack than potato chips or nachos anyday!!! Will definitely be making again!!! Thank you Charlotte!! ~Manda
Yummy. I added some coconut milk to mash them with just because I had a teeny bit left in the fridge- made them yummy and rich! I improvised with this because I only had one sweet potato on hand, and besides, I'm the only one here! Surprisingly delicious unusual combination - I wish that I had added even more garlic!
It was very good! I added some nonfat milk and a little light sour cream to make it creamier, then I used an immersion blender to make it smooth. We might have used a little too much garlic--maybe next time I'll use a little less (we love garlic so probably used a little more than called for!). It tasted fresh and healthy!
