Sweet Potato Puree with Pecans and Maple

Sweet potato puree with pecans and maple syrup.

Serves 12.


  • 10 medium-sized sweet potatoes
  • 250ml butter
  • 250ml maple syrup
  • 125ml sour cream
  • 1 bunch chives, finely chopped
  • 250ml oven roasted pecans


Preheat the oven to 180˚C (350˚F). Using a knife, prick the sweet potatoes. Put on a cookie sheet and bake for 1 hour (or until they are soft). Remove from the oven and let rest for a few minutes. Peel the sweet potatoes. Put them in a food processor, along with butter, maple syrup and sour cream and mix to obtain the consistency of a purée. Put the puree in a bowl, add chives, gently mix together, then put the roasted pecans on top and serve.
