Mashed Sweet Potatoes With Infused Chipotle

pastryparrot1's picture
Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C. They are also full of fiber, manganese, potassium, copper and B6. I try and feed them to my family at least once a week. This dish contains sweet potatoes and butternut squash. The chipolte infused cream gives it a nice kick that balances with the sweetness. This is a great alternative to mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
Ingredients
  Sweet potatoes 4 Large
  Butternut squash 1 Small
  Light brown sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Heavy cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chipotle pepper in adobo 1
  Cooking liquid 1⁄8 Cup (2 tbs)
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
Directions

Peel and quarter the sweet potatoes and the squash. Place in a pot with the brown sugar. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Cook for about 20 minutes until tender.

Place the cream in a small pan. Add the chipotle pepper and bring to a soft boil. Remove from heat.

Place the cooked vegetables in a bowl. Add about 1/8th cup cooking liquid and the butter. Strain in some of the cream – start with ½ a cup and add more if needed. Make sure to squeeze the chipotle well to get its entire flavor.

Mash the vegetables with a potato masher or whip with a handheld beater.
Serve as a side for your favorite food! Enjoy!
