Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Brown Sugar

recipes 006

This is a great, easy side dish to make with everyday meals or when entertaining.  Even if you aren’t a fan of sweet potatoes (I’m not), give this dish a try, it’s super tasty!

Sweet potatoes are packed with fiber, 7 grams per serving.  They are also loaded with vitamin a, c, and e and manganese, benefiting the skin, blood sugar levels and helping to prevent cancers and anemia.  The soymilk provides phytoestrogens which aid in balancing hormones and preventing breast cancer.  A delicious side dish that’s great for your health!  To make this dish (added) sugar-free, swap the brown sugar with xylitol.

  • 1/3 cup soymilk
  • 1/2 cup organic light brown sugar
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


  1. Steam sweet potatoes for 12 minutes on medium-high (I like mine very soft so they mix well)

Serves 4.
