Real Food Thanksgiving – Side Dishes – Healthier Boston Market Style Sweet Potatoes

by Nov 26, 2011Side Dish0 comments

My Mom’s favorite side dish is my Boston Market Style Sweet Potatoes. These are a healthier version that are great for dessert as well as during the main meal. They are really yams but we still call them sweet potatoes(: If you make these they are sure to please and you’ll never eat the ones from Boston Market again!

Healthier Boston Market Style Sweet Potatoes
6 cups mashed organic yams(about 6 potatoes)
3/4 cup rapadura or sucanat
1/2 cup organic cream
1/2 cup melted, organic butter
2 pastured eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp organic cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 cups natural marshmallows-completely optional-they taste awesome without them(can be homemade or from stores like Whole Foods)
-You could also use organic marshmallow fluff from Toonie Moonie.
Rub olive oil, butter, or coconut oil on the outside of the washed and dried yams. Bake them in a preheated 400 degree oven for 60-70 minutes until tender. Allow to cool enough to handle and peel the skins off. Place the insides into a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add rapadura or sucanat, cream, butter, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt into the yams and mix well. Pour the mixture into a buttered 13″x9″ baking dish and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Pour marshmallows into yams and swirl until melted. Sprinkle with a little rapadura or sucanat and serve.
Yum! All this talking about food is making me want Thanksgiving dinner all over again!
