Ok before I share this recipe, I just have to point out that some of you might call these mashed yams, but they are mashed sweet potatoes in my book!
SPs are a STAPLE in our home. There are so many ways to enjoy them, but here I share an easy mashed sweet potato recipe with only 3 ingredients (plus some salt for seasoning!).
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
yield: 3-4 servings
3-4 sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks (no skin)
3 tbsp unsalted butter (or vegan butter)
1 tbsp olive oil
salt or sea salt
Place cut sweet potatoes in a large pot with just enough cold water to cover. Boil until tender (15-25 minutes). Potatoes are tender when you can pierce the potatoes with a fork without too much effort.
Drain and place in a food processor or blender with butter, oil, and desired amount of salt. (TIP: add 1 tbsp of butter at a time and taste as you go. You may want less, you may want more.)
Pulse potatoes until well blended to your liking (I leave mine a little chunky)
That's all! If you make this recipe leave a comment letting me know how it goes or post a picture and tag me, I'd love to see :)
