Ingredients

  • 4 sweet potatoes medium, peel and slice into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups water for steaming

Instructions

  • Add water to a double boiler, turn to high heat. Place sliced sweet potatoes a steam basket, cover, and reduce heat to a low boil. Steam potatoes until tender, approximately 25 minutes. Remove from heat, leave covered and allow to set until slightly cooled, approximately 10 minutes.
  • Place potatoes in a mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork. If a thinner consistency is preferred, puree in a food processor.

Notes

Tip: Sweet Potato Puree can be used as a base for soups and stews, pie filling, in oatmeal, or sprinkle with cinnamon and serve as a side for dinner.
