In the second week of treatment, experiment with your food to find the combinations that work best for you. This recipe for Sweet Potato Mash shows how you can simply combine cooked vegetables and high-protein liquids in a blender for a nutritious meal.
- 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
- ¼ cup melted unsalted butter
- ¼ cup sour cream*
- 3 tablespoons dry whole milk powder*
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin or ginger
- ½ teaspoon salt
- pinch nutmeg
- In a large pot over high, add the sweet potatoes and cover with cold water. Bring the water to a boil and cook about 20 minutes or until tender. Drain the water and return the potatoes to the pot. If needed, evaporate any remaining water in the pot over the turned-off burner or low heat.
- In a bowl, add the melted butter, sour cream, and dry milk powder and stir until combined. Add the mixture, cumin, salt, and nutmeg to the potatoes and mash until smooth.
- Serve and enjoy!
