Mashed Potato & Sweet Potato Makeovers
Doron SchlairShane Kelly takes comfort food favorites, like Mashed Yukon Gold Potatoes and a Sweet Potato Bake and makes them more wholesome. These recipes retain all the flavor of the classic versions with less fat and sugar.
Kelly's mashed potatoes bypass starchy russets in favor of creamy Yukon golds. She leaves the skins on for extra fiber, and adds some of the cooking water into the mix for a smooth texture. A bit of half-and-half and a dollop of butter provide richness without an excess of fat.
Her sweet potato bake showcases the rich, earthy flavor of the potatoes -- without a goopy coating of marshmallows. She bakes the potatoes first, then mixes them together with butter, fresh rosemary, and orange zest to create a side dish that beautifully balances sweet and savory.
