Sweet Potato & Butternut Squash Mash

Sandy Watson


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large butternut squashes, trimmed, peeled, seeded, and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled, and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Pepper
  • (Optional) Marshmallows


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add squashes and salt. Cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until partially tender, about 8 minutes (reduce heat if squash begins to brown). Add 1 cup water, cover, and simmer over medium-high heat until completely tender and water has mostly evaporated, about 15 minutes. Mash with a potato masher. Season with pepper. If you you like the classic sweet potato mash add marshmallows and throw in a hot oven for a few minutes...or better yet...grab a blow torch and toast it like smores!!! (not responsible for reckless blowtorch use)
