  • Cooking Time: 35 minutes


2 large sweet potatoes, unpeeled (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. fresh mint leaves, coarsely chopped
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
fresh mint sprigs, for garnish


  1. Put the whole sweet potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough cold water to cover. Bring the potatoes to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 30–35 minutes. Drain the potatoes and rinse under cold water until they're easy to handle.
  2. Meanwhile, warm the oil in a small saucepan over high heat until warm, about 1 minute. (Or microwave the oil in a microwavable bowl on high until the oil is warm, about 30 seconds.) Add the mint leaves and crush with the handle of a wooden spoon or a pestle. Set aside.
  3. Peel the sweet potatoes and return them to the saucepan. Add the mint mixture, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher until smooth and creamy. Transfer the potatoes to a serving bowl, garnish with the mint sprigs, and serve hot.
