One year over Christmas I was asked to make the sweet potatoes. I knew the obvious answer involved marshmallows, brown sugar, and butter. But I wanted a healthier option, and came up with these savory mashed sweet potatoes with a hint of nutmeg and orange.

Even the kids love them!
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced Zest of 1 orange Pinch ground nutmeg ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth 2 bone-in pork chops, about 8 ounces each Sea salt Freshly ground black pepper

1. Put the sweet potatoes, orange zest, nutmeg, and broth into the slow cooker. Gently stir together.

2. Season the pork chops with the salt and black pepper and set them on top of the sweet potatoes.

3. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, until the sweet potatoes are completely soft and the pork is cooked through.

4. If any large sweet potato chunks remain, mash them with a potato masher or the back of a
fork before serving.

SUBSTITUTION TIP To ensure this recipe is Allergy Friendly and Gluten-Free, use gluten-free low-sodium vegetable broth.

COOKING TIP Before eating an orange, I zest the peel with a grater or zester, and then I freeze the zest in a small zip-top bag until I need it.
