SWEET POTATO MASHED
A perfect pre-race meal that's easy to prepare and packed with loads of carbs.
- 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into one-inch pieces
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place sweet potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough cold water to cover. Bring to a gentle boil over high heat and cook for approximately 10 minutes, or until tender. Combine milk, ginger, and nutmeg in a small saucepan and warm over medium heat. Drain the potatoes, return to the pan, add the milk mixture, and beat with a potato masher or handheld mixer until smooth. Season to taste with the salt and pepper. Makes five servings.
