Yams ( Sweet Potatoes ) Cointreau

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

My husband is not a huge fan of sweet potatoes, but I think he liked this just as much as I did. This has a subtle flavor, and the only sweetness comes naturally from the sweet potatoes. I used more liqueur and pepper. From Southern Living.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook yams in boiling water to cover for 30 minutes or until tender.
  2. Drain and allow to cool enough so they can be handled; peel. Mash yams and stir in Cointreau, margarine, salt, and pepper.
  3. Garnish with parsley.

Tasty, though the Cointreau flavor was somewhat lost. I will make it again with more Cointreau next time. Thank you for sharing this interesting recipe!
