Citrus & Chilli Sweet Potato Mash

prep 10 mins cook 50 mins
  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 25 g (1 oz) butter
  • grated rind of 1 orange, plus 1 tablespoon juice
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle paste
  • 2 tablespoons soured cream
  • salt and pepper

Pierce each potato a couple of times with a skewer and place on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven, 200°C (400°F), Gas Mark 6, for 45 minutes until very soft. Leave until cool enough to handle, then use a spoon to scoop out the flesh.

Heat the butter, orange rind and juice in a saucepan until the butter is melted. Remove from the heat and add the sweet potato flesh and chipotle paste, then mash until smooth. Season well.

Transfer the mash to a serving dish, spoon over the soured cream and serve.
