Sweet Potato Treat
Just in the last few years have I come to love the amazing food that yams are. Yams (a type of sweet potato):
- Contain vitamin A!! 262% of the Daily Value in ONE small sweet potato!!
- Are High in vitamin C. 29% of the Daily Value in ONE small sweet potato!!
- Are High in beta - carotene 23,018 mcg!! (I don't think there is a Daily value for beta carotene, but 23 thousand mcg seems like plenty!
Twice as high in fiber as regular potatoes
This is our favorite recipe for mashed sweet potatoes:
- Flesh from 4 baked sweet potatoes
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon real maple syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
Mix all thoroughly with a mixer, and serve.
Yum! Looks like dessert, but really it's dinner!
