Ingredients

  • 3-4 medium sweet potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
  • Coarse kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large head broccoli cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped raw almonds

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Lightly coat an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large pot, cover sweet potatoes with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil 10-20 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are soft when pierced with a fork. Drain the sweet potatoes, then return them to the pot and stir over medium heat until any excess water has evaporated.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and mash the sweet potatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil, the cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the sweet potato mixture to the prepared baking dish and spread out into an even layer.
  • In a medium bowl, combine broccoli, almonds, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle the broccoli mixture over the sweet potatoes. Bake for 20 minutes or until the broccoli begins to brown.
