Whipped Ginger Orange Sweet Potatoes


Since it is the fall and getting cooler, it is becoming sweet potato season!  This simple side-dish recipe is a winner for any time.  The ingredient list is simple:

2-3 large sweet potatoes (or yams)
1/4 cup milk and 
1/4 cup orange juice
2 Tbsp butter 
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1/8 tsp nutmeg
Salt/Pepper to taste

Peel and chop the sweet potatoes into 2 inch pieces

Boil until they can be easily pierced with a knife (usually about 15-20 minutes)


Drain and put back in warm pan. Add all the other ingredients and either puree the cooked potatoes in a food processor *OR* (because I hate washing my food processor) use a hand mixer. 

This is an alternative way of mashing potatoes and I love the fact I only have to wash the two beaters.  Plus it works great.  Beat the potato mixture on med-high for about 1-2 minutes, or until smooth.
 

Serve with an extra sprinkle of nutmeg and a pat of butter.


Warm, rich, sweet and a bit spicy.   The perfect fall comfort food.
