Field’s Guest-Worthy Recipe: Smashed sweet potatoes with maple chipotle glaze
Why? “Our smashed sweet potatoes are a fan-favorite side that offer a great balance of sweet and savory flavors. We mash the sweet potatoes with a house-made maple-chipotle sauce, giving the dish an elevated, smoky depth with a kick from the chipotle. Plus, we make our version without butter, so it’s lightened up and perfect for vegans too!”
5 lbs peeled and diced sweet potatoes
1/2 tsp ginger powder
16 peeled garlic cloves
1 1/2 Tbsp kosher salt
1/2 c extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c lime juice
2 Tbsp canned chipotle peppers,
1/4 c maple syrup
In a large pot, combine diced sweet potatoes, ginger powder, and whole peeled garlic cloves with just enough water to cover sweet potatoes.
Bring to a simmer and cook until sweet potatoes are soft, about 20 to 25 minutes.
Strain water and remove garlic cloves, and in the same pot, mash sweet potatoes with potato masher until desired consistency.
Add salt, maple, chipotle puree, olive oil, and lime juice, and combine with the sweet potato mash.
Stir with a spatula until seasonings are well-incorporated.
