Mashed Sweet Potatoes

We made lamb chops for the first time the other day.  These potatoes paired nicely with them.  They were super simple.

 

Ingredients:

5 c. sweet potatoes, peeled and diced, 1 inch pieces

1 tsp sea salt

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1/4 c. butter or vegan butter (I used SmartBalance)

1 1/2 T. honey

 

Directions:

Peel and dice sweet potatoes.  Cover with water in a pot and boil for 15-30 minutes until they can be easily pierced with a fork.  Sorry, I forgot to time it and it depends on the size of your potato chunks.  If you’re in a hurry, you can dice them smaller and they will need to cook for less time.  Drain the water.  Mash the potatoes by them selves for a minute to break them up.  Add all ingredients.  I fold the butter in to help it melt.  Once butter is soft, whip the potatoes until creamy.
