ARE SWEET POTATOES HEALTHY FOR YOU?

Sweet potatoes keep you full and are a great source of fibre. They contain a variety of vitamins and minerals including calcium, iron, selenium, B and C vitamins, and the antioxidant beta-carotene.

A low GI root vegetable, sweet potatoes digest more slowly when compared to regular potatoes and release sugar gradually into the bloodstream, keeping blood sugar levels steady.

HOW TO MAKE EASY MASHED SWEET POTATOES

Mashed Sweet Potatoes are just as easy to prepare and cook as regular mash, with minimal steps:

  • Peel
  • Chop
  • Boil
  • Mash
  • Mix in flavours

Some stores stock pre-peeled and chopped sweet potatoes in your grocery store to save you from peeling them. You could also use frozen chopped sweet potatoes. Just thaw them out before boiling or follow packet instructions.

HOW LONG DO YOU BOIL SWEET POTATOES?

Sweet potatoes need about 15 – 20 minutes to cook until fork tender. To test them, lift one piece out with your wooden spoon and insert fork. If your fork slides in easily, they are ready to mash.

A lot faster than roasting, this method is perfect if you’re pressed for time. Especially if you love a good classic mash.

CAN YOU MAKE MASHED SWEET POTATOES IN THE OVEN?

Absolutely! Just throw your chopped sweet potatoes on a roasting tray, smother with seasonings and roast until fork tender at 425°F (220°C). You can also roast them halved horizontally with the skin on, then scoop out the flesh for quicker prep time.

Proceed to mash them once they’re done following the recipe below. They may need 1/4 cup extra milk and a couple extra tablespoons of sour cream, as sweet potatoes tend to come out a little dryer when roasting.

DO YOU NEED TO PEEL SWEET POTATOES FOR MASHING?

This is a personal question depending on what results you’re after. Sweet potato skins are edible and soften while cooking, just like regular potatoes.

If you prefer a classic, rustic mash with a little skin, leave it on.

However, for a smooth and creamy mash like the one pictured below, I suggest peeling them first.
