I made this for my dinner club last night, so since I had to type it up for them, I thought I’d type it up here. This is abridged and adapted from a weight watchers recipe:2 large sweet potatoes 1 1/2 c chicken broth 1 Tbsp butter 1 Tbsp flour 1/4 tsp ginger 1 c evaporate milk brown sugar
Preheat oven to 400°. Pierce potatoes in several places with a fork. Bake for 45 minutes, remove from oven and allow to cool. When cool, remove and discard skin; chop
Combine sweet potatoes and chicken broth in a blender or food processor; blend or process until smooth, about 1 minute, and set aside
Melt butter in a medium-sized saucepan; stir in flour and ginger. Add milk. Cook, stirring, until slightly thickened and bubbly, about 5 minutes. Cook 1 minute more and then stir in sweet potato mixture. Cook, stirring, until heated through, about 5 minutes more.
Add brown sugar to taste (optional: chopped pecans)
