I am a big fan of potatoes, mainly because fries. Duh. I love all things potatoes can be, not to mention they are one of my favorite carb sources. I have been trying to branch out into the world of sweet potatoes and discovering what these orange wonders can turn into.
So I bring you, the easiest sweet potato mash ever.
First and foremost preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a deep cooking dish with aluminum foil, keeps clean up easy breezy.
I prepped the sweet potatoes by washing them first. Then I created a cut down the middle of each potato, however don’t go all the way through. You want a slit just deep enough to let some steam into the potato.
Next place potatoes in baking dish and add about 1/2 cup to 1 cup of water depending on the size of your potatoes. Cover your dish with more foil and bake in your preheated oven for 45-60 minutes depending on your oven and how soft/firm you like.
Once done baking allow to cool for 15 minutes. Remove the skin and place in large bowl. At this point you can either use a fork or potato masher.
Next I always use a splash of milk to make the texture creamy and to making the mixing easier. What you add next is really up to you. I added a few packets of stevia and about a tablespoon of cinnamon. You could add butter, syrup, or coconut oil. You could also take it in the savory direction and add different spices for unique flavors.
Let me know if you try this out and happy baking!
