B’s Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Mash Recipe

I’ve been MIA for a bit but am back in case I was missed 😉

Thought I’d make something different – so voila!  It was pretty tasty but not perfect.  So I will def be trying it again 🙂

First I steamed the sweet potato and butter squash cubes:


Then I mashed em and added melted butter with seasonings…


Voila!  It was a perfect side.

Makes: Enough for 2-3 people as a side

  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • salt, pepper and chilli flakes


  1. Steam the Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash for 15-20 mins.  It’s ready when it’s very soft!

SIMPLE & EASY!  Being vegetarian is not hard.  It’s easy when you use culinary skills – ok so not quite. 😉 It’s easy when you use different ingredients and have a variety of food on the table!
