  • 1-1/2 cups mashed sweet potato

  • 1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • maple syrup to taste

By hand or in blender, combine all ingredients, adding maple syrup to taste. Keeps in the refrigerator for 3 days.

When I asked Cheryl how she used the sweet potato butter, here is what she said: “I usually use it as a spread for an open-faced sandwich. When my kids were little I would put some spread in a reusable container and send them to school with bread (make the bread with raisins if you know you'll have this spread -- it's a really good combo) and a butter knife for spreading on the sweet potato mixture. We have a collection of butter knives with pretty handles, and they loved having those at lunch. I must say, their friends were envious and it set the girls on the road to having good eating habits. The spread is also very tasty on apple slices.”

From Cheryl Sullivan, MA, RD, Co-author of the cookbook Simply Soy, which is still one of my favorite soy cookbooks. It is out of print but available on the web at http://fearn.pair.com/rstevens/SimplySoy/index.html.


In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
