Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Carrots

Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Carrots

There are tons of sweet potato and carrot mash recipes, but this is the simplest and contains no extra cream, milk, sugar, or butter. I think the carrots and the sweet potatoes are rich enough naturally. Recipe is so easy!


– 1 part carrot

– 1 part sweet potato (I left skin on)

– Lemon juice to taste

– Salt and pepper to taste if desired (I didn’t actually need to add any)


1. Cut carrots and sweet potatoes into small chunks.

2. Boil water and place chopped carrots and potatoes in once water is bubbling.

3. Cook for as long as it takes for veggies to get tender enough to mash. Check with a fork and see if the prongs can easily puncture the potatoes and carrots.

4. Once soft enough, drain the water from the pot and then use a masher to mush everything together. Add salt, pepper, and lemon juice to taste if desired.

That’s it! And you’re ready to eat! Yum!

    Izzy, Weight and cups are not the same.

    Lindsey, it’s probably cups since most Americans use cups. None of my friends own a kitchen scale that I know of.

    this sounds soo good… especially for the fall- time :)

    So this might sound dumb, but here it goes…When you say 1 part carrot to 1 part sweet potato do you mean equal weights?

    • Izzy

      Yepp!:D so e.g. 1cup carrot, 1cup sweet potato :)

  • do you just eat like that or like with something like pita chip
