Serve these slightly sweet, tender biscuits (a favorite of Magic Johnson’s)
with the Southern-Style Collard Greens for a perfect down-home duo.

PREHEAT OVEN TO 450 F.

In small bowl, combine soy milk with lemon juice. Set aside. (Mixture will
thicken and resemble buttermilk.)

In medium bowl, combine flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Set aside.

In large bowl, combine oil and mashed sweet potatoes. Alternately add dry
ingredients and soy milk mixture to sweet potatoes to form a soft dough.

Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead briefly. (Don’t
overwork or biscuit will be tough.) Pat dough into a 12 x 9-inch rectangle
about 1/2 inch thick. Cut dough with a floured round biscuit cutter. Place
biscuits on a baking sheet, spacing about 1/2 inch apart. Bake until
golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. Serve warm.
