Sweet Potato Mash

A mouthwatering mashup of sweet potato, spices, tahini and lemon – serve as a healthy alternative to rice or flat bread (as a side to curry). 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Peel some sweet potato and cut into bite sized chunks. Crush some garlic cloves with a knife.

  • Spread your garlic and sweet potato, nicely spaced out, onto a baking tray and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast for 30 minutes – or until tender and easily mashed with a fork.

  • Allow to cool slightly. Then, add to a blender or food processor and purée those ‘tatos until smooth.

  • Add some tahini, salt, smoked paprika, cumin and the juice from ½ a lemon. Blend well.

NUTRITIONAL BENEFIT:

The sweet potato gives your body all the slow-releasing carbs it needs for stable blood sugar levels – which helps to maintain mental focus. Sweet potatoes are also high in Vitamin C and offer great immune system support.
