Salted Sweet Potato Puree
Featured on the "Melissa's Vibrant Steak and Potato Dinner" episode of "Mood Food with Melissa"
4 cups Sweet Potatoes - garnet is my favorite kind!
2 cups Water
2 tbsp Coconut Oil
to taste Sea Salt -Saltery's Duxbury Salt is my favorite!
Slice the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise and then into thin "half moon" slivers.
Combine the sweet potatoes and water in a pot over high heat.
Cover the pot and boil until sweet potatoes easily break when touched with a utensil (approximately 10-15 minutes)
Remove the pot from the heat and let cool, uncovered, until water is close to room temperature.
Once the sweet potatoes have cooled, transfer the sweet potatoes and water they were cooked in, along with the coconut oil, into a blender basin and blend on high until a smooth, creamy consistency is achieved, adding a bit more water if needed.
Season to taste with sea salt, blend again and enjoy!
