Yummy Sweet Potato and Pea Mash.

Hey there, my name is Waithera and I have an insane addiction to sweet potatoes.

A lot of my food recipes on this blog have sweet potato in them in one way or another. I love them so much, I put them in almost everything.

Lucky for me, my family loves them too and this recipe is one of our comfort food staples. It is so simple, easy and quick to put together. Healthy, colourful and tasty too.

Ingredients:-

  1. A small bunch of sweet potatoes, I picked the smaller ones as they are easier to peel.
  2. 1 cup of fresh green peas.
  3. Some fresh mint, dry will do too, a pinch will do.
  4. A tbsp of unsalted butter.
You can use any kind of sweet potato you have. The sweet potatoes here are whiter, fleshier and harder than the orange fleshed ones found in the States. ( I find our local ones tastier too).
Peel, clean and chop your sweet potatoes and boil with some salt and pepper.
Boil your green peas and blend with the mint till mushy.
Once the sweet potatoes are ready and soft, drain and add the pureed peas. Add the butter. Mash together and mix well, remember to check for seasoning.
Mash till smooth or to your liking.

You can serve this tasty main with any side you want. Chicken, beef or even goat curry, or some vegetables.

We had ours with a Kenyan style beef liver stew and buttered cabbage and courgette. The flavours matched together really well.

Try it and enjoy!

How do you like your sweet potato?
