Healthy Sweet Potato Puree


Thanksgiving is just a few days away, but there's always room to add one more side dish to the celebration. Healthy Sweet Potato Puree is one of my favorite ways to gussy up sweet potatoes for a holiday meal. While these colorful potatoes are bursting with flavor when just baked, they become refined when pureed. All I did was boil the potatoes until tender, puree until smooth, and added maple syrup, lemon juice, vanilla, and cinnamon. The outcome is the most deliciously flavored Sweet Potato puree ever.


Ingredients for Healthy Sweet Potato Puree: 6 pounds of sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch slices 3 tablespoons maple syrup 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 2 teaspoons vanilla 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon kosher salt Time-Saving Tip: Cut the potatoes and combine them with cold water up to two hours before cooking.

Let's see what we need.


We're ready to cook.


Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot and just enough water to only cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil and boil until fork-tender; drain.


Transfer the potatoes to a food processor. Run until the potatoes are relatively smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until the mixture is smooth, about 30 seconds.


It's ready! Healthy Sweet Potato Puree is silky and delicious. It's special enough to serve at any holiday meal as it is any day of the week. And it's also healthy, which sounds pretty perfect to me.


Enjoy!
