The recipes featured in our kids and family section all have sweet potato mash puree as the main ingredient.  Here are some tips to make sweet potato mash puree:

  • 200g of raw sweet potato will make 1 cup of cooked sweet potato mash
  • Sweet potatoes can be baked, boiled, steamed or microwaved to make mash.  You need to cook them until they are soft and ‘mashable’.
  • For the smoothest mash, blitz cooked sweet potatoes in a food processor and add small amounts of water until the right consistency is achieved.
  • Sweet potato mash can be made in bulk and frozen in 1 cup portion sizes to thaw and use anytime.  It will keep for approx 1 week in the fridge and up to 3 months in the freezer.
  • Sweet potato puree makes great baby food and you can even add it to many other cooking and baking recipes to smuggle some extra vegetables into meals and snacks.
