Smashed Spiced Sweet Potatoes

Chile powder, cumin and ginger combined with a touch of maple syrup create a spicy-sweet flavor addition to a traditional Thanksgiving player.

Serves 12

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 75 min.

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes, (4-5 large)
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds, toasted and ground (see Tip)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Pierce each sweet potato in several places with a fork. Place directly on the oven rack and roast until soft, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Transfer to a cutting board; let stand until cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes. Slip off the skins and cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch slices; transfer to a large bowl. Add butter. Smash the sweet potatoes with a potato masher or fork until fluffy but some lumps remain. Add maple syrup, chili powder, ground cumin, ginger, salt and pepper; stir to combine.
