Fluffy Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Carrots

Most of my friends can attest that if I know them long enough, chances are I borrow recipe inspiration from them. This was no exception with a new friend who texted me a photo of some mashed carrots with turmeric and ghee she’d made and told me I had to try them.

So I did what any good friend would do. I invited her over and made her cook them for me. And sure enough, I was hooked.

I’ve since (with permission) reworked the recipe to make it more my style. And I must say, this sweet potato carrot mash has become a new favorite side around our house. Let us show you how easy it is to make!

This recipe is easy to make, requiring just 30 minutes and 7 ingredients.

How to Make Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Making mashed sweet potatoes can be a little trickier than regular mashed potatoes because the texture is both tenderer than white/yellow potatoes, and they can also be a bit more stringy when mashing.

For this reason, sweet potatoes typically require slightly less time to boil and can benefit from being blended in a food processor vs. just mashing by hand.

How Long to Boil Sweet Potatoes for Mashed Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are ready for mashing when you pierce several pieces with a knife and the potatoes easily slide off — depending on the size of the potatoes and the cooking pot, roughly 12-20 minutes.

When in doubt, overcook. No one likes having to chew their mashed potatoes.

What to Do with Leftover Mashed Sweet Potatoes

There are many delicious uses for leftover mashed sweet potatoes!

    spread topper
  • Reheat as a side for Roasted Chicken
  • Serve with this Mushroom Lentil Stew
  • Swap for white potatoes in Curried Potato Cakes (aloo tikki)
  • Ravioli filling (recipe in our cookbook)
  • Sub for pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie

We hope you LOVE this mash! It’s:

  • Creamy
  • Salty-sweet
  • Vibrant orange
  • Packed with vitamins & nutrients
  • Comforting
  • & Super delicious

This would make the perfect side for your holiday table and beyond! Top with more dairy-free butter and fresh herbs or minced garlic for even more kick
