Vanilla Sweet Potato | Recipe

Our take on this Thanksgiving staple was created by your Village Super Market dietitian to be a lighter version of your normal sweet potato side dish. It’s also a Gluten Free option! The recipe serves 4, so make sure to grab double the ingredients if you’re hosting more guests.

If you’re running short on time on Thanksgiving day keep this recipe for last. If you’re in a rush this dish can be finished off with only 7 minutes in the microwave!
