  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • ½ tsp seal salt

  1. Peel the sweet potato and medium dice. Add to a medium pot. Fill with water till just above the potatoes. Bring to a boil, then down to a medium rolling bowl till the potatoes are soft when pricked with a fork (about 5-10 minutes).
  2. Drain potatoes, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.
  3. In your high-speed blender or food processor, add 2 cloves of garlic and mince. Add potatoes, ghee, sea salt, white pepper and ¼ c of the reserve water. Puree, adding water ¼ cup at a time till you get desired consistency. Enjoy immediately or store in a glass airtight container for up to 5 days.
