If you prefer your sweet potatoes more on the savory side, this dish is for you. Since the tubers are already naturally sweet, we add just a small drizzle of honey to enhance their flavor. The tahini lends a distinct nuttiness and contributes to the overall creaminess of the dish. We use a food processor because it creates an incredibly smooth texture; you can also mash with a potato masher for a more rustic dish.


  • 1 1/2 pounds peeled, cubed sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
