sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
butter, cut into chunks
( substitute cashew butter for a vegan alternative)
2 -4 tablespoons
light brown sugar
dried cranberries, chopped
( into halves or thirds)
- Steam the sweet potato cubes over medium heat about 25 minutes (time is given from the moment the stove is turned on until the sweet potatoes are done).
- Place the sweet potatoes and butter in a medium bowl and mash with an electric mixer on low speed (the heat from the sweet potatoes should melt the butter). Add the rest of the ingredients and combine.
- Notes: The orange juice adds quite a bit of sweetness to this dish. You may wish to add the brown sugar slowly, tasting as you go, to avoid over-sweetening.
