Once you’ve tried a smashed banana with sweet potatoes…the two will become inseparable. I love the pairing and the way the banana adds a sweet tanginess. I drizzled in a little honey along with a grating of fresh nutmeg…and dived into my evening “vegetable”, that tasted more like a pre-dessert.
Banana and Sweet Potato Mash
- 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chunked
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1/4 cup brown sugar or honey
- nutmeg, pinch
- salt and pepper
Boil sweet potato until fork tender. Mash in banana, milk, sugar and seasonings.
I also heated up a few cocktail rye breads topped with hanky panky (these had been premade and frozen). I had two of these little guys, which are one of our favorite comfort foods. The bread gets nice and toasted, the cheese is warm and smooth, and the meat has a little spiciness!
I’m also having leftover Cranberry Rhubarb Oatmeal Crisp for dessert tonight (just swap out a cup of frozen cranberries for the tart cherries in the recipe linked above). Here’s a photo recap of when I made it over the weekend….
Somebody's spoon fell in…
I love fresh fruit crisps…
