1 (16 ounce) package
sweet potato, peeled and cubed
applesauce, or as needed
As is, I think the recipe is really good. I used regular carrots and sliced them. I was surprised at how quickly the sweet potato cooked. Next time I think I'll start teh carrots and add the sweet potatoes after 5 min. I'll also get the applesauce out of the fridge and let it sit while cooking the potato and carrots. Our mash cooled down quite a bit with the addition of the applesauce. But really, I do think this is a good recipe. Next time I make it I'm sure I'll give it a "5 star". I think it could use a little something in the spice area, but I'm not sure what. If anyone has any thoughts, please post them. A little ginger maybe?
Good but next time won't use quite as many carrots.
V. good recipe. I don't like raisins so I left those out and cut the sugar down to 2 T.
It definitely needs a touch of salt and because I like the flavor, I added about 1/8 t of allspice to the butter/sugar mix.
With these small changes it wasn't bland.
Unbelievable!!!! So incredibly easy, fast, and delicious. I think it even tastes better as a leftover the next night!!! I've made it three times this week!!!
A great twist for sweet potatoes! I used an electric hand mixer to mash, which didn't mash the carrots very well, but I like the texture with the lumps in it. I used cinnamon applesauce, a little less brown sugar & butter, and no raisins (just out of laziness - next time I'll put them in). Served with barbecued chicken breasts and steamed green beans. Will make regularly, thank you!
Too sweet, but I will reduce the amount next time. Tastes great with added pecans. Thank you!
I modified this recipe, I was trying to use up a can of sweet potatoes and a can of carrots. I'm sure it would have been even better with fresh veggies! I ommitted the brown sugar...canned sweet taters come packed in syrup...even though I drained that off... I used 2 cans sweet taters, 1 can diced carrots, 1/2 cup applesauce. didn't have any raisins. It was good and done in less than 10 mins. Still pretty good!
I have a really big guy for a boyfriend. It's such a chore trying to get him to eat vegetables. He ate these! Good with little marshmallows on top too.
