Creamy Mashed Sweet Potato

The past weekend I took some time to catch up on some introspection, and what better way to do so than letting my creativity flow in the kitchen? (Well, there’s also the option of running to escape The Blerch – which I also did.) Mom had recently brought me some fresh produce and included in my care package were some good ole sweet potatoes.

Sweet potatoes (Ipomoea batatas) are a personal fave. Their versatility lends to an array of sweet and savory dishes, and makes it easily paired with a variety of herbs and spices. These starchy, naturally-sweet, tuberous roots can be made into a salad, side dish, main course, dessert and even a drink. Here in Jamaica, sweet potatoes are commonly enjoyed as a staple food crop, usually as a substitute for rice.

Elle & Vire’s premium cooking cream and butter were perfect for this recipe. You really can taste the richness of these quality ingredients. Of course you could have used evaporated milk or regular whole milk but it wouldn’t taste the same. This dish is a great accompaniment to almost any meal and remains a classic and delectable side dish.

One love,

SC
