Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Beets

Holy pink deliciousness! These mashed sweet potatoes with beets are amazing. And just LOOK at that color! The cooked green onions on the top really enhance the flavor of the mashed sweet potatoes and beets.

Hubby ate these in his lunch for a couple days. He said some of the guys at work asked him quite a few questions about the pink food… We both really liked these and I can’t wait to make them again.

Don’t forget about my Power of Pink Challenge – make something PINK by the end of the month to raise Breast Cancer Awareness!

    My honey and I can’t get enough spinach, and while we’ve made something similar to what you made, we’ve never tried it with the pan roasted peppers. That sounds like the perfect addition!!! I just know I’d love it! 🙂
