Regular mashed potatoes can be boring after a while. Mix things up tonight with this delicious and savory sweet potato mash. Sweet potatoes are naturally high in iron, fiber and vitamin C, which makes this side dish both low-carb and nutritious. Add fresh thyme, salt and pepper to transform the dish into a sweet and savory combo that will delight every taste bud.
You can pair the recipe below with nearly any main course or protein, and it goes particularly well when served alongside white meats like chicken, turkey or pork. As added bonus, this recipe relies on just a little milk and butter for its creamy consistency, so you're saving big on calories compared to butter-heavy mashed potatoes or a brown-sugar-laden sweet potato casserole. This recipe is the perfect meeting point of salty, sweet and creamy!
