Once the potatoes are baked, this healthful side dish comes together in minutes. It reheats really well in the microwave.
- 3 pounds medium sweet potatoes
- 1/2 cup regular or low-fat sour cream
- 1/3 cup finely chopped scallions, white and tender green parts
- Freshly ground black pepper
Place a large piece of aluminum foil on one of the oven racks; preheat to 350 degrees.
Put the sweet potatoes on the aluminum foil and bake for 45 to 60 minutes, until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork.
Using a large fork to hold the potatoes, peel each one with a small knife (the skin will peel away easily). In a large bowl, mash the potatoes with a fork. Add the sour cream, scallions and salt and pepper to taste and mix until thoroughly combined. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary. Serve warm.
