Sweet potato and onion mash

  • Serves: 2
  • Cooking time: 10-15 mins

We’ve been on a bit of a recipe hype lately here at Health Room. And I’ll be honest, it’s probably because I managed to figure out how to make this new swanky looking recipe page, which I’m pretty excited about. It’s a collection of all the creations we’ve thrown together over the past year or so. All plant based, vegan, healthy, easy to make, affordable, and pretty tasty.

And you wanna know the best part?

The page is completely self sufficient, and updates itself! So every time I add a new recipe to the blog, it will automatically get added to the recipe index, picture and all. How sweet is that?!

Very sweet is the answer. It will save me a shed load of time and hassle, which will allow me to focus on the more important stuff – putting out the best content that I can. But I can already tell that you’re probably not quite as pleased as I am at this concept, so lets just get on with the next recipe already…

This sweet potato mash recipe is pretty versatile, and makes a great addition to a load of different meals. We had it a few days ago with a super quick dahl, but it goes equally as well with spicy beans, or on its own as a soup if you water it down a little.

Quick, simple, easy to make, and full of plant powered goodness. Go get yourself some mash!

sweet potato mash INGREDIENTS

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 small red onion
  • A drop of nut/soy milk
  • A pinch of cinnamon and ground ginger
  • Fresh coriander to serve


  1. Chop your ‘tatoes and onion up into chunks. I don’t bother peeling the potatoes, but feel free to do so if you’re not a fan of skins in your mash.
  2. Boil or steam the potatoes for 10 minutes or so until soft enough to take a fork, adding the onion in for a few minutes at the end.
  3. Drain, and then mash up with the cinnamon and ginger, and enough milk to keep it moist. I keep everything in the saucepan over a low heat whilst mashing.
  4. Serve up, and feel free to sprinkle with some fresh coriander to garnish, maybe with a little more cinnamon for that professional looking finish.
