Mini Sweet Potato Soufflés & Give-A-Way

Sweet potato is a moderate FODMAP food sources (a source of mannitol)….yet full of wonderful flavor and is nutrient rich…a great source of  Vitamins A and C, potassium and fiber.  Monash University’s low FODMAP app has the per meal limit set at 1/2 cup. So…I made a little mini soufflé recipe to keep the portion in check.  You are going to love me for this one! 🙂IMG_0911editI made 3 little soufflés but you can certainly double the recipe and make more.  I made this recipe for our Thanksgiving dinner and my 89 year old Mom fell in love.  It was super easy and very yummy!

You whip up the insides (i.e.flesh) of one large baked sweet potato with 1 egg, a little sugar and lactose free milk, drizzle of vanilla and small amount of melted butter.

Split the mixture up between 3, 4 ounce ramekins that have been lightly oiled.  And then top with a little brown sugar & pecan crumble.

Bake for about 15 minutes. And thank me later! IMG_0905edit Here’s the recipe!
