this is one I found a few months back and I make it all the time, I'm bringing it tomorrow for everyone to enjoy!! The old man loves it. You can omit the carrots if you want.

Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons maple syrup(I use sugar free)
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Freshly ground black pepper



Directions
Place the sweet potatoes and carrots in a medium saucepan. Add 1-inch water, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 9 to 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are very tender.

Drain in a colander and return to the saucepan. Mash until smooth. Stir in the maple syrup and nutmeg and pepper to taste


Number of Servings: 4
