Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes
Method: Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Scrub potatoes and prick all over with a fork. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out flesh into a large bowl. Mash with a hand masher or electric beater (do not use a food processor). Add soy milk, maple syrup and seasonings. Mix well.
HINT: These may be prepared a day or two ahead of time and refrigerated. Reheat in a microwave before serving. They may also be peeled and cooked in water instead of baked. Drain off cooking water and proceed as above for mashing.
