Allow me to first give credit where credit is due. This recipe that we had for HEALTHY potatoes on Thanksgiving came from Eating Well. Note: for you butter, brown sugar, sweet tooth lovers, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU!
On the other hand, all you sweet potato lovers who are craving healthy mashed potatoes- here you go.
Also- credit to Mom for making this, I had to work and was unable to help cook the dish! BUT I DID FIND THE RECIPE!
- 4 medium sweet potatoes (about 8 ounces each), peeled and cut into a large dice
- 1/4 cup buttermilk, warmed slightly
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 2 teaspoons orange zest
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, optional (I didn't use it!)
Steam the potatoes in a large covered pan fitted with a steamer basket until they are tender, about 8 minutes.
In a large bowl mash the potatoes with the buttermilk and orange juice. Stir in the zest, salt, and nutmeg. Serve the potatoes topped with the butter, if desired.
