Sweet Potato-Carrot Mash

Staff | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 4 people

A nutritious starter food—though it’s tasty enough for the whole family—that’s packed with beta-carotene and other vitamins. Try the dark-skinned variety of sweet potato (often mislabeled as yams), which are even sweeter than the ivory-fleshed kind.

  1. Steam sweet potato and carrot chunks until fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Transfer to food processor or blender. Add hot milk and purée. Add pear, orange juice, butter, and salt, if using. Purée until very smooth.
