Quick Mashed Sweet Potatoes

We've discussed before how nutritionally dense the sweet potato is- which is perfect because it is also super tasty and simple to prepare in so many different ways! I love it in this breakfast quinoa hash or stuffed with black beans and corn, but simple mashed sweet potatoes are just as good. You can always cube and boil the potatoes like you would make regular mashed potatoes. But if you need dinner on the table ten minutes ago, this is the way to go. 

What You'll Need:
1 sweet potato
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp salt
dash of cinnamon

What to Do:
Slice potato in half and poke holes all over it. On a microwave safe plate, microwave on high for five minutes. Check the potato to see if it's soft. (Mine was) Continue cooking in 20 second intervals until you reach the desired consistency. Scoop all the potato into a bowl and mash with a fork with butter, salt, and cinnamon. Serve warm.
