Sweet Potato Puree
See the list of ingredients needed to prepare your Sweet Potato Puree and follow the step-by-step instructions.
- Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into small, even pieces. This helps it cook faster.
- Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot and cover them with cold water. Add a pinch of salt to the water.
- Place the pan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Cook the sweet potatoes until they are tender when pierced with a fork, which usually takes about 15-20 minutes.
- When the sweet potatoes are ready, drain the water.
- In a separate pan, heat the milk and butter over low heat until the butter melts completely.
- Place the cooked sweet potatoes in a large bowl and mash them with a potato masher or fork.
- Gradually add the milk and butter mixture to the mashed sweet potatoes, stirring until smooth. You can adjust the amount of milk as needed to reach your desired consistency.
- Season the puree with salt and black pepper to taste. Keep in mind that the amount of salt can vary depending on your personal taste.
- Serve hot sweet potato puree as a side dish for main dishes. You can also add a little more melted butter on top before serving, if desired.
