Sweet Potatoes are finally getting the recognition that they deserve. They’re an amazing source of fiber. They’re rich in antioxidants. They have more vitamin A and C than almost any other single fruit, veggie, or root. They contain choline and manganese which are both essential to our brain health. But really, you can just taste the goodness.
When I do Whole30 and I am craving carbs and sugar, the sweet potato comes to the rescue. It’s a perfect balance of sweet and starchy. It’s just plain good.
This version of Sweet Potato Mash takes it one step further by adding a touch of cinnamon so you can fill your whole house with the smell of Autumn.
If you’re looking for ways to put sweet potatoes in your diet but hoping for something a little less autumnal, try these Chili Lime Roasted Sweet Potatoes.
