Sweet Potato and Apple Mash

Apples with engraved hearts

What you Need :


  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled
  • 1 red apple, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tablespoon fresh sage
  • 1/2 tablespoon Rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon allspice (optional)

How to Make It :

Preheat the oven to 425˚F. Boil a medium pot of water. Cut the sweet potato up into ½ inch cubes. Then boil the sweet potato in the water for 5 minutes. While the sweet potato is cooking, cut the apple into 1 inch pieces. Place in a medium bowl. Then add the rest of the ingredients: olive oil, garlic, sage, rosemary, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. When the sweet potato is done, strain and discard water, then place the sweet potato in the medium bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well to combine everything. Pour the mixture into a casserole dish, spread the mixture out evenly in the dish, then place and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove the casserole dish from the oven, and mash the sweet potato mixture with a potato masher. It’s okay if the mash is still somewhat chunky. Voila!
