Recipe: Low-Fat Sweet Potato Casserole

I found this in First Magazine several years ago.  Try this instead of the marshmallow version to save calories and fat grams.

  • 3 medium sized sweet potatoes (about 1-1/2 lb.), pared and cut into chunks
  • 2 large baking apples (about 1 lb.), cored and cut into wedges
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. margarine, melted. (It calls for margarine but I suppose you could use butter.)

Preheat oven to 400.  Spray a 8″ or 9″ baking dish with vegetable cooking spray.  Add potatoes and apples.  Sprinkle first with cinnamon, then with sugar; toss lightly.  Add bay leaf, oj, and margarine.  Cover dish with foil and bake about 1 houror until potatoes and apples are fork-tender.  Remove bay leaf and serve.  Makes 8 servings, 209 calories, 3 g fat.
