Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Miso Butter (5 Ingredients)
Naturally sweet with a deeply savory twist, these mashed spuds are guaranteed crowd pleasers.
- 2 lbs. sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
- 1 Tbsp. miso paste
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- 3/4 cup vegetable broth warmed
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- Fresh thyme leaves for garnish
Place the potatoes in a large steamer basket over a pot of boiling water. Cook until fork-tender, about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare Miso Butter by creaming 2 Tbsp. of the butter and miso paste together with a fork. Add black pepper and set aside.
Mash sweet potatoes by hand using a rice or masher, or blend in a food processor or blender until smooth. Add remaining 1/4 cup softened butter, broth, and salt.
Transfer to a bowl and immediately top with Miso Butter, which will melt into the potatoes from the residual heat. Garnish with fresh thyme leaves.
