Nutrition-packed and inexpensive sweet potatoes cook easily in a pot of boiling water. Once cooked, the possibilities for using them are limitless. Start by substituting sweet potatoes for cooked white potatoes.
Mashed sweet potato recipes generally start with roasting your sweet potatoes, but this can be a tricky proposition when oven space is limited. For a stovetop adaptation, simmer those sweet potatoes in a rich cooking liquid that gets blended right in at the end. This keeps things more flavorful and less waterlogged than if you’d just boiled the sweet potatoes in water.
