Making mashed potatoes out of sweet potatoes is pretty simple: boil chopped sweet potatoes for 30-45 minutes until soft. Drain the water. Mash in a bowl with some almond milk and Earth Balance. Season with salt and pepper.
The whole thing turned out quite tasty. It was nice to be able to eat a slightly healthier and easier version of this dish.

I always found it funny how many names there are for chickpeas. There's chickpea, garbanzo bean, Indian pea, and Bengal gram. Chickpeas are also considered one of the longest cultivated vegetables in the world. I also found out, via handy dandy Wikipedia, that India produces the most chickpeas in the world by quite a large margin. About six times as much as the country in second place: Pakistan. And of course, chickpeas are an excellent source of protein. Now on to the recipe!
