Sweet Potato Puree

Sweet Potato Puree

Author: Stephanie Kay

Some recipes will call for the addition of milk, cream or stock to the sweet potato puree, but I think they taste best on their own with a generous season of salt and pepper.

  1. Wash, peel and chop sweet potatoes into 1” cubes.
  2. To cook the sweet potatoes, you can either boil or steam them. Steaming will retain more of the nutrition, but boiling works well too.
  3. To boil, bring a pot of water to a boil, add diced sweet potatoes and cook for 15-20 minutes until potatoes can easily be pierced with a fork.
  4. To steam, add diced potatoes to a steamer and cook for 25-30 minutes until potatoes can easily be pierced with a fork.
  5. Once the potatoes are tender, strain the water and add them to a food processor or blender with sea salt and fresh pepper.
  6. Puree on high for 1-2 minutes until completely smooth.
  7. You can also use a potato masher if you don’t have a food processor, they just won’t be as smooth in texture.
  8. Enjoy!
