Dessert for dinner

Sure, sweet potatoes have enough natural sugar on their own, but if you get one of those unavoidable cases of sweet tooth, the kind that just won’t leave you alone until you’ve had something totally sinful, try these. They might just do the trick.

Recipe 336 of 365: Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Cumin and Honey

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prick two medium sweet potatoes (about 3/4 pound total) a few times with a fork, wrap in foil, and roast until completely tender all the way through, or 60 to 90 minutes, depending on your potatoes’ age and shape. Let cool in the foil for about 10 minutes, then unwrap and carefully peel the skin off. Mash in a bowl with just a teaspoon or two of honey, 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt, about 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, and a good pinch of salt. Serve immediately.
