Meatless Monday-Orangey Sweet Potatoes

In preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, I am going to provide you with a great light and clean version of baked mashed sweet potatoes.  Mine do not have any sugar or marshmallows, so you can save your calories on something else!  You can make them ahead and reheat.  So, go out, buy the ingredients, and get cookin’!
