Servings: 6 servings
- 3 large sweet potatoes or 4 medium, chopped
- 2 Tbsp ghee or butter, melted
- 1/4 cup milk or cream
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp paprika
Wash sweet potatoes with water and scrub with a veggie brush. Chop into medium-sized chunks. (I like to leave the skin on -- if you'd prefer to remove the skin, peel potatoes before chopping.)
Transfer sweet potatoes to a medium-large pot and add enough water to cover them completely. Cook over high heat and bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer for 15 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender.
Drain potatoes using a large colander. Transfer boiled potatoes to a large mixing bowl.
Add ghee and milk and mix in with your hand mixer until smooth, about 2 minutes.
Next, add all of your spices. Mix again until they are incorporated, about 1 minute.
Assess the texture and if it's too thick, very slowly add small amounts of liquid until you reach desired texture. Taste and add more salt and/or pepper as needed.
Serve hot. Each serving is ~1/2 cup; recipe yields roughly 6 servings.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
