Here’s an interesting, savory twist on a Thanksgiving classic – Yams!. This year, skip the marshmallows and add some fresh herbs on top instead. The kids will feel a sense of pride having made a super side for the family table.
Tools your kids will learn to use include a vegetable peeler, knife & cutting board, measuring cups, cooking pot, and a fun for kids potato masher. The start-to-eat time is one hour and teaches these kids kitchen skills: peeling, measuring, cooking at the stove and that fun mashing. This Thanksgiving, get the kids to help you with the cooking. Mash up a scrumptious side dish with this recipe. Give it some extra flavor by adding roasted garlic, if you’d like.
Ingredients include sweet potatoes, roasted garlic cloves (optional), cream, butter, grated fresh Asiago or Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and fresh thyme.
