Sweet Potato Mash Recipe

  • 7 months +
  • 8 (2 ounce) servings
  • vegetarian
  • gluten free

The small amount of Lactobacillus in unpasteurized yogurt acts as a starter to make a very low-sodium fermented food, without the negative effects of dairy. There should be a slightly fermented, tangy taste.

You will need:
  • 3 cups cooked sweet potatoes (1–2 raw potatoes)
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon sea salt for 6–12 months, ¼ teaspoon for 12–24 months, 1 teaspoon for 2 years+
  • 1 tablespoon plain, unsweetened, unpasteurized yogurt
Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Bake whole sweet potatoes for 1 hour.
  3. Peel and mash cooked sweet potatoes with a fork.
  4. Add salt and yogurt.
  5. Spread the vegetable puree in a glass or ceramic container.
  6. Fill a strong plastic bag with water and zip or tie with a knot. Make sure the seal is secure, and place over the sweet potato puree. The water-filled bag should spread out and cover the puree to prevent air contact.
  7. Place a lid over puree with weight.
  8. Leave in a warm place for 48 hours and taste.
  9. Refrigerate to keep fresh.
