Sweet potato mash

Sweet potatoes can be a great source of provitamin A, depending on the colour of the flesh. The more intense the orange or red colour, the higher the provitamin content.

Ingredients (serves 4):


  • Peel and chop the sweet potatoes and cook them in a pan for 20 minutes.
  • Once cooked, mash the potatoes with some of the cooking liquid and warm milk.
  • Season with salt, then add the butter and stir.
  • Sprinkle with nutmeg and serve piping hot.

You can replace the milk with cream for a smoother, more decadent mash.
