Steamed Purple Sweet Potatoes
Simple to make steamed purple sweet potatoes. Done in 20 minutes.
- 2 medium to large Stokes Purple Sweet Potatoes
- 2-4 tablespoons butter
- kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Peel your sweet potatoes, then cube them.
Place them into your steamer basket (see notes if you don't have one) and steam them until fork tender
You could eat them as is, or you could mash them up with a fork, then mix in butter, salt, and black pepper to taste.
If you don't have any special steaming equipment just take a pot that you had a lid for place a mesh strainer over top. Add the sweet potatoes. Fill the pot with enough water to just come underneath the potatoes. Add the lid. Bring the water to a boil, then turn down to simmer. Cook until tender.
You could also place the finished potatoes into a pan with a couple tablespoons of oil, and pan fry the potatoes until just browned. Should only take a few minutes.
