Smashed Maple Sweet Potatoes and Bananas


2 large Sweet Potatoes
2 large, very ripe bananas
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 Tbs pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp ground sage
salt and pepper


Peel the sweet potatoes using a vegetable peeler. Quarter lengthwise and thinly slice (remember, the thinner you slice them, the faster they'll cook!). Place in a medium size saucepan and cover with water. Place pan over high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until fork tender, 5-10 minutes (depending on how thin you sliced them). Drain the water and return the potatoes to the pan.

Peel the bananas and add them to the pan of potatoes. Add the maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, sage and salt and pepper to taste. Mash with a potato masher until it reaches desired consistency

Serves 4

This recipe is perfect to serve with any breakfast meal - it has great breakfast flavor and is a great way to have vegetables along with breakfast food.
