One of my favorite fall side dishes is the sweet potato. Although it’s kind of a fall staple, I like it any time of year. Baked, roasted, mashed, whatever. I wanted to make mashed sweet potatoes the other night. I’ve never done it before, so I looked up some basic recipes for a little guidance and then took it from there to create my own side dish.
1 sweet potato, peeled
1/2 cup Tzatziki (or you don’t have that on hand, you can use plain Greek Yogurt)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Chipotle powder
Boil the sweet potato in water until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well. Put the potato and the Tzatziki or greek yogurt into a blender (an immersion blender or electric mixer will work too) and pulse for a few minutes until smooth. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and add cinnamon and chipotle. Continue to mix together until well-combined.
