RECIPE: Sweet Potato Mashies

It doesn’t get much better than a healthy, savory, comfort food like these Blue Cheese Mashed Sweet Potatoes!

These are sure to be a hit and make a great side dish for any holiday gathering!  I like to keep a batch in my fridge and warm a little portion when I need a sweet, savory or hardy treat!

If you’re not in to blue, choose another cheese like parmesan. Make ’em how YOU like ’em!

Makes 6-8 servings, keeps in fridge all week.

Ingredients and Instructions:

1. Peel and then slice/cube 5-6 small to medium-sized sweet potatoes

2. Boil cubed potatoes in a large pot for ~ 10 minutes (until taters are soft, but don’t burn your finger checkin’) and then drain

3. In a food processor combine boiled sweet potatoes, 1 clove garlic chopped, 1/4 cup milk of choice (I used rice milk, but any hormone free milk’ll do; plus I’ve made them without milk and they are still delish!), 1/2-1 cup blue cheese crumbles (depends on how cheesy you wanna be), 1/4 cup 2-3 Tbsp olive oil, 1/4 tsp sea salt, 1/4 tsp pepper

4. Serve with blue cheese crumbles atop!

5. Now take a bow, because these will Wow!

    Tumeric and ginger and even honey are wonderful in this mix.
