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)

  • Salt

  • 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.

Grilled Tomatoes:
  • 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.
