Driscoll Sweet Potato Whip & Raspberry Swirl Recipe #MadeWithLove

Thanksgiving is almost here and my family is busy planning our menu. Is your family doing the same? Do you plan on have the staples of a thanksgiving meal? One of my favorites is Sweet Potato pie! While I love Sweet Potato pie, this year I was looking to do something different with Sweet Potatoes.

Driscoll Sweet Potato Whip with Raspberry Swirl Recipe

This week I saw Driscoll's "Sweet Potato Whip with Raspberry Swirl" Recipe which offered a new and yummy way to make a side dish using Sweet Potato. Doesn't it look good?!

Bring color and flavor to the holiday table with this delicious side dish. Roasting sweet potatoes concentrates their flavors and gives them a dense texture. Raspberry puree brings out their sweetness with a rich intensity and makes a stunning garnish. Both can be made ahead and rewarmed just before serving.

Sweet Potato Whip with Raspberry Swirl Recipe

Quick Facts

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 10

Ingredients

4 pounds orange-fleshed sweet potatoes (yams), peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 packages (6 ounces or 1 1/3 cups each) Driscoll's Raspberries
1/3 cups packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
1/3 cups maple syrup. preferably Grade B
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
Salt to taste


Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss sweet potatoes and oil together until evenly coated on a large rimmed baking sheet. Cover tightly with foil. Roast until sweet potatoes are very tender, about 45 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring raspberries, brown sugar and water to a simmer in a nonreactive medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, until the raspberries are soft and their juices are slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Purée in a blender. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl. You should have 3/4 cup raspberry purée; simmer over medium heat to reduce, if needed.
  3. Transfer sweet potatoes to a large bowl. Add butter, maple syrup and 1/2 cup raspberry purée; reserve remaining purée. Whip with an electric mixer on high speed until smooth. Season lightly with salt.
  4. To serve, transfer to a warm serving bowl. Drizzle with the remaining raspberry puree. Serve hot.
  5. Note: Grade B maple syrup has stronger maple flavor than Grade A syrup. It is available at natural food stores and some wholesale price clubs.

If Making Ahead

The whipped sweet potatoes and raspberry purée can be cooled, covered, and refrigerated for up to 1 day. Let raspberry puree stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Reheat sweet potatoes gently in a large saucepan over low heat, stirring often.
