While visiting my parents I was reminded of my dad's love of cardamom. (It reminds him of Finland--but that's a story for another day.) So when I received a sample of the new Knorr Homestlye Stock, with a challenge to use it in a recipe of my own creation, I immediately wondered how I could also use my dad's favorite Cardamom. This is the recipe I came up with. My family and I have enjoyed it twice now--I hope you'll give it a try.
Cardamom Pureed Sweet Potatoes
Cook Time: 20 min --- Total Time: 35 min
Serves: 8 half cup servings
2 medium sweet potatoes (1.5 lbs total)
2 cups apple juice
1 cup water
Knorr Homestyle Stock (concentrated stock)
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/8 tsp cinnamon
Fresh ground pepper
Variation: For a more rustic texture, omit 1/2 cup apple juice and mash with a potato masher instead of pureeing.
