Sweet Potato Recipe Question

Indy 67 | Apr 15, 2011 04:00 AM

I have a recipe for a baked sweet potato recipe -- a Passover kugel in fact -- that calls for the sweet potatoes to be peeled, cut into large chunks and chopped fine in a food processor. Yellow onions and red peppers also get the same treatment in a food processor. Only then, are the vegetables combined with other ingredients like eggs, egg whites, vegetable broth and almond flour and, finally, baked.

I think the recipe has some appeal, but I'd rather keep some texture counterpoint from the red peppers and onions. I'm planning on baking the sweet potatoes and, then, mashing them. I'll separately sautee the red peppers and onions (in large dice or strips), and, finally combine all the ingredients before baking.

I can't imagine that there's any problem my plan, but I'd appreciate any comments from folks who either see the advantages of the original instructions or any downside with my alternative technique.
