How to Make Quick and Easy Sweet Potatoes
Ingredients for Quick and Easy Sweet Potatoes:
- 4 Sweet Potatoes (Local organic is preferred)
- 4 Oz cup of Pineapple (fresh or canned)
Directions for Quick and Easy Sweet Potatoes:
2. Fork the sweet potatoes in 6-7 places. Make sure to keep your hands away from the fork when you stab it in.
3. Set the sweet potatoes on a microwave safe plate. Hit the potatoes button for the amount of sweet potatoes you will be cooking. Allow the potatoes to cool for at least 15 minutes. They will be VERY HOT and may burn if you try to peel them too quickly. I “may” know this from personal experience.
4. Peel and place sweet potato and pineapple (undrained) in the food processor.
How to Use a Food Processor
This is the first time my daughter used the food processor. I took the time to explain to her
- All the parts and how they are put together.
- The s shape blade, that it is sharp, and how to handle the blade safely.
- How to put the lid on and check to make sure everything lines up.
- The buttons for pureeing and chopping.
- My rules for when she can use it.
5. Puree until blended. We did 10 seconds, then scraped the edges with a spatula and 10 seconds more.
6. Scoop and serve warm. These quick and easy sweet potatoes also reheat well.
