Smashed Sweet Potatoes

These were actually really good!  They’re just a little sweet and have good flavor.  Sweet potatoes are a healthy alternative to regular potatoes, because they have less starch. The only bad thing about this recipe is that sweet potatoes are hard to cut up!

  • 1 large carrot, or a handful of baby carrots, cut into chunks
  • 1 can low-sodium chicken broth

  • Drain the cooking water.

PS… do NOT put all the peels down your garbage disposal at once 😉
