You can tell these tubers are good for you just by looking at them. Sweet potatoes get their orange hue from beta-carotene. They’re also high in fiber, and a good source of iron and vitamins C and B6.


Cook sweet potatoes in a pot of boiling salted water until fork-tender, 1015 minutes. Drain sweet potatoes and return to pot. Cook sweet potatoes over medium-low heat, stirring, to remove excess moisture, 12 minutes.

Off heat, add butter, half-and-half, brown sugar, and cinnamon; crush with a potato masher until combined and desired consistency is reached.

Season sweet potatoes with salt and pepper; top servings with parsley.
