1 tablespoon margarine
1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
2 tablespoons brown sugar replacement, like Brown Sugar Twin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Melt the margarine in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the sweet potatoes, cover, and cook stirring occasionally, until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
Stir in the brown sugar replacement, salt, pepper, allspice, and nutmeg. Cook 2 minutes more. Serve warm.
Sweet potatoes are loaded with health-boosting beta-carotene. To get the most beta for your buck, shop for sweet potatoes with rich orange flesh. The darker the flesh, the more beta-carotene you’ll get. Also, have a little fat with your meal to help your body absorb this fat-soluble nutrient. The small amount of margarine in this recipe is just the right amount.
