Sweet Potato Mash:
2 sweet potatoes, medium
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons whole, unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon dried ginger
1 teaspoon minced chipotle pepper (optional)
Cut 2 medium sized sweet potatoes into small, 2-inch cubes and boil in salted water, in a large pot, until the cubes are fork tender, about 7 minutes. Once the sweet potatoes are fully cooked, drain the water from the pot and place into a medium sized bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup of milk and 2 tablespoons of butter. Add 1/4 teaspoon each of cumin, cinnamon, and ginger. For added heat, add 1 teaspoon of minced chipotle pepper. Mix together with a masher or wooden spoon until the ingredients are fully integrated, then set aside.
Fried Sweet Potato Triangles:
1 sweet potato, medium
Vegetable oil, for frying
Slice the sweet potato into 1/8-inch triangles. Fry the triangles in vegetable oil in a medium sized saute pan until crisp. Use the triangles as a garnish in the sweet potato mash.
5 small Roma tomatoes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place the tomatoes in a large pot of boiling water for approximately 2 minutes. Remove the tomatoes and immediately shock them in ice water. Once the tomatoes are cool, peel away the tomato skins. Cut the tomatoes in 1/2, and season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place the tomato halves in a grill pan, and cook until each side is seared, roughly 3 minutes per side. Remove the tomato halves from the pan and set aside.
