Savory Curried Mashed Sweet Potatoes (Gluten-Free, no soy/dairy/grains)

Updated: Feb 24, 2020

Sweet potatoes are SO good for us. However, when thinking of using them for a 'soft' side, just the name conjures up all sorts of overly-sweet holiday dishes drenched in brown sugar and covered with whipped cream. That's fine for a bite or two, but then my palate gets overwhelmed and tired.

Enter Savory Curried Mashed Sweet Potatoes! The perfect balance of in-your-face flavor with creamy texture. I served these at a family get-together not knowing that all of us weren't normally sweet potato fans... and it was a HUGE hit! Did I mention that they are super easy?
