How do you make your sweet potato?

I was looking for a mashed recipe online but can't find anything without butter. Can I just boil and then mash them?

    You can nuke them. 10 - 15 mins depending on size.

    You totally can! All I do is boil or steam, and then mash (adding a little almond milk for liquid if I feel the mix is a bit stodgy) and that's it :smile:

    Spritzed with oil and lightly salted, baked with a potatoe nail.
    Or poked with a fork and microwaved if I'm rushed.

    Mash with a little Greek yogurt and a little sugar free maple syrup (or regular) and some cinnamon! So good!!

    My favorite way is to put them on the grill. The peel comes off easily, don't need butter or any kind of sweetner.

    I peel and slice into medallions, toss with olive oil and bake at 450 turning to brown both sides. Sprinkle with a touch of salt. Then I top with a dollop of guacamole.

    I like to bake mine in the oven. You can always just mash them after. I find the flavor is best when baked.

    I like boiling or steaming then mash them. Add a bit of the left over water to get the consitency u like. Then add some apple sauce or better yet blend up an apple and mix that together and top with cinamon. My kids love it too.

    275 degrees for 2 1/2 hours. Slow roasting caramelizes the potatoes, making them deliciously sweet without adding anything else. You can wrap them in foil first or just bake them in a foil lined pan so they won't drip in your oven. The low temperature is the key.

    Forgot to mention, I put a piece of foil to catch drippings on the oven rack below the rack the potatoe is on.

    I grab one and bring it to work with me. I just poke a few holes in it, wrap it in a wet towel and 6 -7 minutes is usually enough. Then I throw on a lil PB and cinnamon and indulge!!! mmmm!

    I mash mine with half carrots (cut smaller than sp as they cook slower), half sp. No butter required.

    Baked inf oil, or cut into thin rounds, drizzled with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and baked for 20 minutes, then turn and bake another twenty minutes at 400 degrees - sweet potato chips!

    Last night I made shepherds pie and I used half potato and half sweet potato for the mash. Added a little stock, salt and garlic.
