Serves: 3
Sweet potato meets balsamic vinegar
  • 2½ lbs sweet potatoes, skin on
  • Olive oil
  • 4 tbsp light brown sugar
  • ½ cup full fat sour cream
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Prick the skin of the sweet potatoes and generously rub with oil
  2. If roasting, set oven to 375ºF and bake until potatoes are easily pierced, about one hour. To prepare in a microwave, place pricked and oiled potatoes on a plate and microwave on high for 10 minutes. Flip potatoes and cook for an additional 2-5 minutes or until easily pierced
  3. Allow potatoes to rest until cool enough to touch. Remove and discard skin. Transfer the sweet potatoes to a bowl and mash
  4. Next add the brown sugar, sour cream, balsamic vinegar and salt; mix until well combined
  5. Best served warm, though room temperature and even cold is just as delicious
