Garlic Mashed Sweet Potatoes

I’m still searching for the perfect sweet potato recipe.  This recipe turned out pretty well, after I added butter… but leave the butter out if you’re eating Paleo.  I couldn’t eat this every week, but on occasion it’s definitely worth keeping in the rotation.

Garlic Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Slightly adapted from Paleo Effect


  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 sweet potatoes, skinned & diced into 1/2 inch cubes (skin them. the skins are gross)
  • 2 tb olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/3 c milk
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tb butter, softened


  • Toss the sweet potatoes with garlic, olive oil, sea salt, & pepper.
  • Spread on a baking sheet & bake at 400 for 25 minutes, or until potatoes are very soft.  Shake once or twice to rotate.
  • When the sweet potatoes are done, put them in a bowl with milk, lemon juice & butter.  Mash all ingredients together until desired consistency is reached.
  • Add additional salt & pepper to taste.
