It's November, the eating-est month of the year. In celebration of the approaching Thanksgiving holiday, we'll spend the month offering up recipes that would make nice, change-of-pace additions to your big meal. Today's recipe comes from Food Network superstar Rachael Ray.
3 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 stick butter
1 banana, sliced
1 orange, zested and juiced
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Salt and pepper
Boil potatoes until tender, drain and reserve. Return the pot to the stove top over medium heat. Add butter and bananas to the pot. Cook bananas 5 minutes and add the juice of 1 orange to the pot, reserve the zest.
Allow the juice to cook out, 1 minute. Add potatoes to the pot and the stock and sugar. Mash potatoes, banana, stock and sugar together until well combined. Season with nutmeg, salt, pepper and orange zest, to your taste. Mash to combine spices and serve.
