What about making a high-protein mashed sweet potato casserole? Mash the potatoes, make "milk" from vanilla Grow! and water, mix with butter flavored seasoning, top with finely chopped almonds, bake. Portion out into meals, served with lean protein. I got this idea last night, after tasting a coworker's sweet potato casserole...I have been sick of steamed sweet potatoes for a while as well, but am going to try this "healthy" version.
I like the idea of adding vanilla protein powder. Never thought of that before.
Another thing is that with a little brown sugar it almost tastes like pumpkin pie. If i can make a wheat crust and get some of that low calorie whipped cream, maybe I can trick myself into believing the lie.
I also remember hearing somewhere that in south africa they make a sort of stew out of it....or maybe that was pumpkins.
Chop them up and put them in a pan with any meat you're roasting, pork tenderloin or ham works especially great. before putting them in the pan with the meat, toss them in olive oil, and season with salt, pepper and rosemary. by the time the meat is done roasting, the sweet potatoes are perfectly soft and their flavor is hearty, not sweet.
