I am a massive sweet potato fan but I must admit I usually have them roasted or as fries or wedges. This idea for a sweet potato mash is great though and comes from The Great American Detox Diet. This is the book that chef Alex Jamieson wrote that contains the recipes for the food she made for boyfriend Morgan Spurlock after his MacDonalds Supersize Me expereince.
The sweet potatoes are boiled and then get a mashing with some flax oil and maple syrup. I served them with veggie sausages, caramelised onion gravy and topped with toasted almonds.
