Sweet Potato Puree

Sweet Potato PUree

I LOVE LOVE Love Sweet Potato.
I don’t know what it is but I can’t stop eating it.
I’ve been using it every where; cupcakes, frosting, layer cakes…even custard.
Yep..I have an addiction!

Making sweet potato purée could not be easier.
Just pop a whole sweet potato in the oven, forgot about it for an hour or so then scoop it out once it’s cooled. I will often put one in the bottom of the oven when baking a cake or cooking dinner so it’s always in the fridge for when I want (no need!) some sweet potato custard.

Sweet Potato puree (just like Pumpkin purée) is my secret ingredient in so many dishes; Bolognese sauce, quiche, meatloaf, even casseroles. It’s a super adaptable veggie for both sweet and savoury dishes.

Use your Sweet Potato Puree to make a Mississippi Mud Pie, Nutella Pudding Cookie Dough Tart or Chocolate Sweet Potato Frosting.
