This simple recipe was found on the internet at sweetpotato.org. Half of a 15-ounce can of yams (drained & mashed) can be substituted for the fresh ones. Preparation time does not include the time needed to cook the sweet potatoes.
- 1 pint nonfat plain yogurt
- 1 (1 ounce) envelope onion soup mix
- 1⁄2 cup fresh sweet potatoes, peeled, cooked, mashed
- Mix all the ingredients together & chill.
- Serve with fresh veggies.
I first made this recipe with 1/2 cup of mashed sweet potatoes, and it seemed like a regular onion dip. When I looked at the intro, I saw it suggested using 8 oz of canned sweet potatoes. This is one of those situations where measure by weight has been confused with measure by volume. The source has the recipe posted the same way. I ended up adding more mashed sweet potato, although I don't think I quite got up to a full 8 oz. I took it to a potluck, some people like it, some did not. I thought it was pretty good, and the yogurt was definitely healthier than sour cream. Served with carrots, celery sticks and red and yellow sweet peppers.
