Garlicky Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Total 40 mins, includes cooling time
Active 15 mins
Makes 6 servings
  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled, rinsed, and sliced in half
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 4 to 5 garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper, plus more for seasoning
  • 1/2 to 1 cup heavy cream
  1. In a large pot, add the sweet potatoes and cover with cold water. Add 1 tablespoon salt and bring to a boil. Simmer until the potatoes are fork tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Add the butter, garlic, parsley, rosemary, 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, 1/2 cup cream, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mash until creamy with a fork or potato masher. If you prefer a looser mash, add more cream until you reach your preferred consistency.
  3. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper.
