Mashed potatoes. Comfort food. Seriously one of my favorite foods. There is nothing better than a side of creamy and garlic-y mashed potatoes. And as much as I love potato as a vegetable. Although potatoes have a bad rep, one of the more unfortunate parts of the potato is that it is a nightshade. Nightshades inherently are inflammatory to the body, so the more we limit the consumption of potatoes, the better overall for our bodies.
The search was on to make a side of something creamy and delicious that elicits the same comfort food aspect of it all.
In Ayurveda, when I think of comfort, the first thing that comes to mind is something that is nourishing and grounding. All of this leads to minimizing vata. So, naturally I reached for root vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes.
AND GUYS. This was the most delicious thing I have had in a long time. I want you guys to make this almost immediately. I kid you not it was so good. And the best part was that it took zero to no time to make this! Recipe below. Promise you're going to love this.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! Bon apetit!
