Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 6 medium red potatoes
  • Earth Balance Organic Buttery Spread or butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder (or to taste)

Directions

  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a light boil over medium-high heat, and allow to cook for about 20 minutes or until very tender.
  2. Drain potatoes and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Using a potato masher, mash potatoes until fluffy.
  3. Add melted butter, garlic, salt, and pepper to the bowl and stir with a wooden spoon.
  4. Depending on your preference you may want to add more salt, garlic or butter. Just taste and adjust.
Sweet Potato Fries

This recipe comes from Minimalist Baker. I didn’t make the no-honey mustard sauce. I mixed honey and yellow mustard together for dipping. I also forgot to take a picture.

Ingredients

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, sliced into thick wedges
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pinch black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a baking sheet.
  2. Toss sweet potatoes in oil until all sides are well coated. Season with salt and pepper and toss once more, then arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake for a total of 25 minutes, or until golden brown and tender, flipping once at the halfway point to ensure even cooking.
