Mashed sweet potatoes
This is my second post regarding this delicious subject but I promise it's a different story.
What about a nice and easy plant based dish for dinner?
Interested, keep scrolling down.
Just a reminder, the amount of what I indicate in my recipes is for a single or a double 👫👬👭.
"The sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) is a dicotyledonous plant that belongs to the bindweed or morning glory family, Convolvulaceae. Its large, starchy, sweet-tasting, tuberous roots are a root vegetable. The young leaves and shoots are sometimes eaten as greens."
I always like to keep recipes easy, yet they have to stand out in flavor and if possible also in color. Every dish needs a few pictures, that comes with the deal.
I already showed you above what you will need for the sweet potato mash, so I quickly explain how to prepare this dish. I said 1 sweet potato....I meant a big one 😉
Peel the potato(s) and cut into pieces, add some salt and cook or steam off.
Remove the water.
Add the rest of the ingredients earlier explained and mash them up.
There's not much to it, is there?
Just be careful when you add the milk, so you can have the texture you prefer.
Add some butter or olive oil while serving to make it even more delicious, it also gives that nice inviting touch to it.
The mushrooms I bought already sliced, so I just trow them in the pan with some olive oil.
Add salt and pepper and a tsp, maybe 2 of soy sauce (I guess with any other sauce like oyster sauce it should be nice too).
Just let them shrimp and brown for a few minutes, it's very simple and easy.
I also added some pre-cooked spinach which I heated up in the same pan, after de mushrooms were ready. I would use fresh spinach but I had this jar I really wanted to get rid of.
I heated up some extra olive oil, added 2 sliced up garlic cloves, some salt and pepper.
This is ready in another few minutes of stirring.
As a finishing touch I gave this recipe the honer of some pretty expensive pine seeds, which I absolutely love. Maybe where you live they are affordable, but here on the Island..... 💸
I hope you like this recipe and keep me updated if you gave it a chance.
