How to Make these Delicious Mashed Sweet Potatoes:
- Peel the skins off the potatoes, unless you want a chunkier mash. For this recipe, I peel the skins off.
- Roast or boil the potatoes on the stovetop. However, boiling them is much easier and produces a creamier result.
- After you boil them, drain the potatoes.
- To blend, either use a potato masher or an electric hand mixer. If you want your potatoes super smooth, feel free to use a food processor.
- For the best results, blend in the the milk and butter.
- Don’t forget to season. Salt and pepper are a must.
Different Flavor Combos:
- Use brown butter
- Top with candied pecans or your favorite toasted nut
- Sweeten with honey or brown sugar
- Add cinnamon, nutmeg or both
- Sprinkle some DIY Garden Herb Salt on top
I love mashed sweet potatoes! And my favorite way to serve them is with some maple syrup, vegan butter and garlic. Depending on what else I’m serving with the potatoes, I will either add some cinnamon or herbs to the potatoes as well.
FYI: Leftover mashed sweet potatoes keep will in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.
