"This is a super simple recipe that I make as a sweet, easy side dish. It tastes a LOT like apple pie... but even healthier!"
INGREDIENTS:
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored and
sliced
1/8 cup milk
DIRECTIONS:
1.Place the sweet potato in a medium saucepan and fill with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for about 20 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.
2.Melt butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Mix in the sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Add the apple slices, cover, and let simmer for 5 minutes, or until the apples are tender. Mix the apple mixture into the drained sweet potatoes along with the milk. Mix well using an electric mixer or just a fork until potatoes are mashed.
