      Yummy and interesting. A nice change from the sweet marshmallow recipes for Sweet potatoes. A good lunch or light dinner. Just one large sweet potato will give you the 4 cups of shredded that you need. The potato doesn't mash and become creamy, it stays more firm. It tastes similar to Indian food with the savory and sweet together. Definitely worth a try.

      This recipe is from "Moosewood Restaurant Cooks At Home" which is full great vegetarian recipes and a few fish recipes. I serve this with a mango salsa that I either make (from the Moosewood website) or buy at Bristol Farms. A great way to serve sweet potatoes or yams without adding a ton of butter or some sugar.
