Sweet potatoes are another of my favorite fall/winter vegetables. They’re versatile, delicious, and pretty easy to prepare. When I’m in a hurry I’ll wrap one in a wet paper towel and put in the microwave, but these taste best when they’re given plenty of time to cook, like in this crock pot recipe.
Sweet Potato Mash
- 2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
- 1/2 cup vegetable stock
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup non-dairy butter substitute (Earth Balance, etc.)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
- Mix all of the ingredients in a crock pot and cook on high for about 4 hours, or until potatoes are tender. Add more liquid as needed. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or hand mixer until they’re as smooth/lumpy as you’d like. Taste and add more brown sugar/cinnamon if desired.
