Serves 4 to 6
1. In a small pot, combine the sweet potatoes and water. Cover the pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook, covered, until potatoes are soft, 15 to 20 minutes.
2. Using a strainer drain the water from the potatoes, then return them to the pot (heat off or on simmer) and mash them with a potato masher or fork. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
