Sweet potato puree can be made in 15 minutes! Serve it as a side dish, use it in baking, swirl it into oats, add it to smoothies and more.
- 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1–2 inch cubes.
Peel your sweet potatoes and cut them into 1-2 inch cubes. Try to keep the size uniform so they cook evenly.
Add a steamer basked to a pot filled with 2 inches of water. Add in the sweet potato, cover and bring the pot up to a simmer. Once the steam is visible, cook for 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork.
With a spoon, transfer the potatoes to a food processor fitted with the S blade. Process until the potatoes are completely broken down and a smooth puree forms, scraping down the sides as needed.
Other cooking methods:
Oven: Prick unpeeled sweet potatoes with a fork 4-5 times. Wrap in foil and bake at 400 degrees for 60-90 minutes until very soft. Set aside to cool before peeling. The potatoes should peel easily by hand. Puree until smooth.
Boiling: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add in cubed and peeled sweet potato and boil until tender, about 15-25 minutes. Time will vary depending on the size of your potatoes. Drain well before pureeing.
