Sweet Potato Mash

Sweet potatoes are another of my favorite fall/winter vegetables. They’re versatile, delicious, and pretty easy to prepare. When I’m in a hurry I’ll wrap one in a wet paper towel and put in the microwave, but these taste best when they’re given plenty of time to cook, like in this crock pot recipe.

Sweet Potato Mash

Sweet Potatoes 1


  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy butter substitute (Earth Balance, etc.)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon


  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a crock pot and cook on high for about 4 hours, or until potatoes are tender. Add more liquid as needed. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or hand mixer until they’re as smooth/lumpy as you’d like. Taste and add more brown sugar/cinnamon if desired.
