Garlic Basil Mashed Sweet Potatoes


  • 1.5 lbs Sweet Potatoes
  • 1.5 tbsp basil chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1) Place sweet potatoes in pot of water and boil for about 20 minutes or until tender enough to poke a fork through them.2) Take the sweet potatoes out and allow to cool enough so you can peel the skin off without burning your fingers (lesson learned the hard way).3) Mash sweet potatoes in a bowl and add basil, garlic, butter, salt, and pepper. If you feel it needs more butter, feel free to add some but I felt that 2 tbsp was perfect.
