Mashed Yams and Butternut Squash

Mashed Yams and Butternut SquashYams are one of the best ways to load up on beta-carotene. Mashing them with butternut squash makes them light and moist as well as adding carotenoids beyond the familiar "beta" kind. A bit of butter enriches this dish, bringing out the natural sweetness in both these bright vegetables. It also proves that everything is good in moderation.
  • 2 medium yams, peeled cut in 2-inch chunks
  • 1 small butternut squash, peeled and seeded, cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 2 Tsp. unsalted butter
  • Salt to taste; Optional: ground pepper

In a large pot, steam the yams with the squash until they are both tender, about 20 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl. With a fork, coarsely mash them. Add the butter and continue mashing until it has melted. The vegetables should still have a bit of texture. Season to taste with salt and, if desired, pepper. Serve immediately.
OPTIONS: Use yellow-skinned or white potatoes in place of the yams.
