Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes
This dish is on my table’s top-ten list, and not just because it’s easy to make and tastes great. Sweet potatoes are one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat. They’re packed with a laundry list of nutrients and always taste great, especially with aromatic olive oil instead of rich butter.
1 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup olive oil
a sprinkle or two sea salt and freshly ground pepper
2 green onions, minced
Toss the unpeeled baked sweet potatoes into a bowl and splash in the maple syrup and olive oil. Mash well and then season with salt and pepper. Stir in the green onions and serve immediately.
