Here is a new way to try Sweet Potatoes. We had it last night and it
is now a family favorite.
Garlic-Thyme Sweet Potatoes
3 lbs. sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and cut into 1" chunks
1/4 cup fat free half and half
1 small onion, chopped fine
2 cloves garlic
3/4 cup fat free milk
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. pepper
In sauce pot, combine sweet potatoes and garlic cloves with water to cover.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15
minutes. Drain. In same pot, heat small amount of wine or apple juice over
medium-low heat. Add chopped onion and minced garlic; cook until golden
brown, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove pot from heat and add
sweet potatoes, milk, salt, dried thyme, and pepper. Using electric mixer,
beat until smooth.
