Recipe / 10 Minute Mashed Sweet Potatoes!

Hey everyone,

I am excited to share with you today my recipe for mashed sweet potatoes, which you can make in less than 10 minutes! This is perfect for simple individual lunches. I seriously don’t understand why so few people (myself included) make this for lunch more often, because it is seriously perfect: quick, easy, delicious, cheap and so so so healthy!

Keep scrolling to see the recipe!

Ingredients
1. 1 sweet potato
2. Any toppings: butter, salt, cinnamon, sour cream, walnuts, cheese, honey, all to taste!

Step 1. Wash potato to scrub all dirt off.

Step 2. Stab potato with enough holes to let air out. The potato should be really hard, so use a sharp knife!
If you want, you can peel the potato (that’s what I did) but the skin is just as edible!

Step 3. Microwave potato on high for 4 minutes

Step 4. Take potato out, and mash it like in the photo below.

Step 5. I personally like to add butter at this step; it makes it really creamy!

Step 6. Microwave again for 1 minute, 30 seconds
