Side Dishes: Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Roasted Green Beans

Sweet Potatoes

The mashed sweet potatoes and roasted green beans are great side dishes for any meal.  They are super easy, so they are great to do during the week and they are fancy enough for a special dinner.  We eat sweet potatoes all the time, so I try to make them in different ways and this is definitely a favorite of the kids.  Mashing them is als really great for kids who may not like to try new foods.   Roasting the green beans brings out the sweetness in them that you don’t get when the beans are boiled.  This is my favorite way to have green beans now.
