Home | Recipes | F
Diabetic Low-fat/cal Sides


  • 4 Sweet potatoes
  • 2 c Crushed pineapple in juice
  • 2 ts Cinnamon
  • 1 ts Nutmeg
  • 1 tb Slivered almonds; for garnish


Forget the gobs of butter and brown sugar. Pineapple and spices add flavor but not unwanted calories and fat.
1. In a large saucepan, boil the unpeeled sweet potatoes over medium head for 45 minutes or until you can pierce them easily with a fork; or bake them directly on the rack in a preheated 375 degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
2. After completing either method of cooking, let the potatoes cool and then gently peel them.
3. Mash the potatoes with the pineapple and spices.
4. Place in a 1 quart casserole dish and top with slivered almonds.
5. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
