Optional Additions: to taste
Sweet Potato Mash with Goat Cheese:
Fill your pot with water, add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil.
Peel, wash and chop your potatoes into quarters. Once your water is boiling, add chopped potatoes. The water should completely cover the potatoes. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover loosely and boil for 15-20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender enough to be poked through with no resistance.
Drain well, rinse quickly with hot water and allow to drain again. Place potatoes in a large mixing bowl.
Mash potatoes with an electric mixer (for a creamier consistency) or a potato masher (for a thicker consistency).
Once your potatoes are mashed to the desired consistency, add goat cheese and mix well.
OPTIONAL: Add cinnamon and nutmeg, stir. (Start with a small amount of cinnamon and a tiny pinch of nutmeg. Increase amount to your taste preference. You can always add a little more after you taste test!)
Roasted Sweet Potato Quesadillas: Instead of adding an abundance of cheese to your quesadilla, get creative and use your leftover sweet potatoes mash as your base. Add your favorite roasted veggies and serve it with a vibrant side salad.
Roasted Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Tacos: In a small tortilla, combine mashed sweet potatoes, roasted cauliflower, black beans, sliced avocado, pickled red onions, chopped fresh cilantro, hot sauce and whatever else you want to toss in there.
