Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes mashed with extra virgin olive oil and whipping cream is a nice alternative to traditional mashed potatoes.


4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 to 1/3 cup whipping cream (35 %)
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


In a saucepan, cook the potatoes in salted boiling water until tender. Drain well to remove excess moisture.

Add olive oil, 1/4 cup whipping cream and salt and pepper. Mash until smooth, adding more whipping cream, if needed.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings.
