Savory Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Yup. Another sweet potato recipe. We just can't get enough.

It really is all about simplicity. There is nothing fancy or complicated about the recipe. Just look at the list of ingredients, nothing but goodness.... you can't go wrong.

We served this as a side dish with some fabulous rib eye steaks and grilled corn on the cob, it was one of the best meals we have EVER made.

Makes 2 servings

2 medium sweet potatoes, roasted
2-3 cloves soft roasted garlic
1 green onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp. softened butter
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary stalks (optional)

Preheat oven at 425. Cut potatoes cut into quarters (or at least equal sizes) and place on a roasting pan covered with foil. Optional: we like to roast a whole bulb of garlic wrapped in foil, though you will only need about 3-4 cloves for this recipe. Roast for about 40 minutes or until potatoes are soft. Another option: include 2-3 whole sprigs of rosemary in the roasting pan, it infuses a subtle rosemary flavor to the potatoes.

Place potatoes in a medium sized bowl, add the garlic and butter and mash by hand, until well combined and slightly lumpy. Mix in green onions and parsley and serve warm.
