Easiness: ***

Whipped Sweet Potatoes

* 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
* 1 cup nondairy sour cream (try Tofutti brand at Tofutti.com) or sour cream (lacto-ovo)
* 2-3 Tbsp. margarine
* 1 tsp. salt (optional)
* Freshly ground black pepper, to taste (optional)
* 4 Tbsp. pecans, almonds, or walnuts, chopped (optional)
* 2 Tbsp. brown sugar (optional)

Fill a medium pot with water and bring to a boil. Add the potatoes. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain. Pour the potatoes into a bowl, and beat them with an electric mixer on low speed. Add the nondairy sour cream and margarine and whip until fluffy.

For a more savory version, mix in the salt and pepper. For a sweet version, sprinkle potatoes with the nuts and brown sugar just before serving.
