Printable Recipe

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10-15 minutes
Serves 4-6


2lb/900g sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (I do mine small for faster cooking)
1/3 cup butter
1 tbsp gingerroot, grated
1 cup milk
Kosher or sea salt
Garnish: 1 tbsp chopped cilantro or 2 green onions thinly sliced

1. Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot of cold, lightly salted water – enough to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium and boil gently until the potatoes are tender (10-15 minutes). Drain and return to saucepan to keep warm.

2. Meantime, in a small skillet, melt the butter over medium heat and add the ginger. Sauté until aromatic (about 1 minute).

3. In the pot, mash the sweet potatoes with the ginger butter, milk and salt & pepper to taste. Heat through and transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with cilantro or green onions and serve.
