Harissa Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Harissa Mashed Sweet Potatoes


2 medium sized sweet potatoes--washed

1-3 tablespoons Earth Balance (or butter, margarine of choice)--softened

1 teaspoon - 1 tablespoon harissa (to taste, really)

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon




*Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prick the washed sweet potatoes all around with a fork. Place on a baking sheet and bake until soft (~60 minutes). If you are strapped for time, feel free to use the microwave to bake the potatoes. Set aside once soft.

*Mix Earth Balance, harissa, cinnamon, salt, and black pepper. Add harissa mixture to the baked sweet potatoes (you can keep the skin on the potatoes or remove it). Mash or whip until the potatoes are the desired consistency/texture. Adjust seasoning. Enjoy!
