Ditch the exceedingly sweet potato casserole
Whoever came up with the marshmallows and sweet potato puree combination, clearly had too much time on their hands. For one, this overly sweet paste should be served as a dessert instead of a side dish to a salty and flavorful meal. Luckily, sweet or regular potatoes can be turned into something more than a gooey puree.
Make fancier sweet potatoes
If you want to avoid wasting time on boiling, pureeing, topping and throwing the sweet potatoes under the broiler, simplify your work by making sweet potatoes with tahini butter. All you’ve got to do is steam the potatoes over a lowish heat and add the palatable sauce to go with the tender meat. To make things even fancier, add toasted sesame seeds and a little bit of lime.
