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.
On a different vein, I also tried making a recipe from Living Raw Food: the Tomato, Fennel, and Avocado Pressed Salad with Caper Dressing. It was really tasty basically consisting of chopped tomato, chopped fennel, chopped avocado, handful chopped basil, handful chopped mint, 1/4c chopped pistachios topped with a dressing made out of oil, capers, and some agave (if I'm remembering correctly). It was really fresh and delicious. You should give it a whirl!
