Serves: 4


  • 3 cups water
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1⁄2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1⁄2 tsp. all-natural sea salt


  • In a medium pot over medium-high heat, add water.
  • Peel sweet potatoes, rinse thoroughly, and cut into 1⁄4-inch slices.
  • Add sweet potato slices to pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until sweet potatoes are fork tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat and reserve water from pot in a separate measuring cup.
  • Sprinkle sweet potatoes with 1⁄4 teaspoon of the cayenne, and add 1⁄4 cup of removed water back to pot. Using an immersion blender, emulsify potatoes, adding removed water as needed until desired thickness is achieved. While emulsifying, add remaining cayenne and salt.
