Sweet Potato Casserole

Ingredients

2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, (3 medium), peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 tablespoon honey

1/2 cup low-fat milk

2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

Casserole Topping

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

4 teaspoons frozen orange juice concentrate

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 tablespoon butter, melted

1/2 cup chopped pecans

 

 

Cooking Instructions

 

1.       Place sweet potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook over medium heat until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain well and return to the pan. Mash with a potato masher. Measure out 3 cups. (Reserve any extra for another use.)

2.       Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch-square (or similar 2-quart) baking dish with cooking spray.

4.       To prepare topping: Mix flour, brown sugar, orange juice concentrate, oil and butter in a small bowl. Blend with a fork or your fingertips until crumbly. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle over the casserole.

5.       Bake the casserole until heated through and the top is lightly browned, 35 to 45 minutes.

Clean Eating Cranberry Sauce

 

Ingredients

12 ounce bag of fresh cranberries (approx. 3 ¼ cups)

½ cup honey or maple syrup

1 medium cinnamon stick

Zest of one large orange

1 cup water

 

Cooking Instructions

 Put everything in a pot, and turn your stove on. Phew! That was tough, wasn’t it?

 Cook over a medium-high heat for about 30-45 minutes.

When most of the liquid is cooked out, turn your stove down to a simmer. The longer you let this simmer, the thicker the sauce will get. Just don’t let ALL the liquid cook out or it will burn. Stir more frequently near the end.

Allow this to cool before you eat some. Trust me. I learned the hard way. It really burns right out of the pot! (I have no patience when it comes to good food!)
