Hello everyone. Welcome to Norah’s Cooking Diary.

In this video I am going to share with you a Mashed Sweet Potato recipe. This side dish goes well with almost any types of roast recipes (such as roast lamb, pork chops and the like). In fact, the Mashed Sweet Potato is so versatile that you could enjoy the dish as it is. If you omit the salt and pepper from the recipe, you could also prepare this for young children as it is healthy for them. The inherent sweetness of the sweet potatoes is also well loved by many adults and children alike.
Several notes here to share with you:
Boil sweet potatoes in 2 cups of plain water until tender (but not too soft). Discard the boiling water and return the pot to the stove. Add milk, salt and black pepper to taste. Continue cooking until the amount of milk in the pot left about 3 tablespoons.
Mash the sweet potatoes using the potato masher. Add butter and mash together with the sweet potatoes.
If the mashed sweet potatoes is too runny, return the pot to the stove and set heat to LOW. Keep stirring to avoid the bottom from burning. Cook to the desired thickness/consistency.
Remove the mashed sweet potatoes and serve warm with the main dish of your choice or savor it as is.
Happy cooking ;-)
