How to Recipe Video:
Depending on how much time you have and your preference, you can cook the sweet potatoes however you like. I roasted them to bring out their natural sweetness. If you’re short on time, as I often am, you can buy frozen diced sweet potatoes and steam them in the bag. Voila, in just a few minutes you are ready to go! Same goes for the cauliflower. One crucial step; make sure to drain them really well. Soggy veggies = soggy wet mash! Can you say “ick?”
Now let’s get mashing. All you need is a blender, food processor, or old fashion hand held muscle masher. For this recipe, I would probably use kitchen power tools, to achieve that creamy, melt in your mouth texture.
Top this beautiful side with fresh herbs, lemon zest, hot sauce, or whatever your taste buds desire. Remember to have fun in the kitchen, comment, and let me know how YOU made it your own. See you soon and be kind!
