Mashed Yams with Crispy Maple Shallots - cook for your life
Servings: 6
Prep time: 20

This dairy-free sweet potato, Yams dish with its sweet and crunchy shallot topping is an office favorite here at CFYL. During the Holidays, the shallot topping is a great alternative to the more traditional marshmallows.


1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium skillet over low heat. Add shallots to pan and cook until softened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the maple syrup and sage, and cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat for 7 minutes or until the shallots are very golden. Set aside.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium stockpot, cover the sweet potatoes with water.  Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 8-10 minutes. Drain then pour in a large bowl.  Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher, or blend with a hand-mixer until smooth.  Taste for seasoning.

3. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with the crispy shallots.  Serve warm.

Ann's Tips and Tricks

Use the shallot topping to add a little oomph to grain dishes like basic quinoa, couscous or brown rice. Or classic holiday fare like green beans and mashed potatoes.
