Spiced Mashed Sweet Potatoes
(http://www.vegan-nutritionista.com)

The yam and sweet potato are actually totally different vegetables, but we confuse them really easily. Yams are smaller, sweeter, and have red or purple flesh. Sweet potatoes have a few varieties, but the one that we call the yam has an orange flesh and the ends come to a point on the outside. True yams are difficult to find in the grocery store.

So, typically this dish is made with sweet potatoes. They are yummy and healthy! This is a great vegan holiday recipe that you can use anytime.

Ingredients:

6 sweet potatoes (you can get a mixture of the different varieties at the store)

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp. non-hydrogenated non-dairy butter

1 tbsp lemon juice

3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

3/4 tsp. ground allspice

3/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

2 tsp. grated orange peel

salt and pepper

Directions:

- Use a fork to put holes in the rinsed sweet potatoes, then put them on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees until tender, about 40 min- 1 hour.

- Put the cooked sweet potatoes in a bowl (peel them if you desire), and mash with a potato masher.

- Add all the spices and season to taste.

- You can mash these to your desired consistency. Some people like to use an electric mixer to get them really creamy.

Serves 4-6.
