Servings 4 cups
- 4-5 small-medium sweet potatoes (about 1350 grams)
- 3 cloves garlic
- 3 tablespoons tahini
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- oil, to coat
- salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Rinse sweet potatoes and poke holes in them with either a fork or a knife. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 50-55 minutes, or until soft to the touch.
When there is 20 minutes left on the sweet potatoes, rub peeled cloves of garlic with oil and place on baking sheet in the oven. Let roast the remaining time.
Once sweet potatoes are done, remove from oven. Let cool a minute and remove skin. The skin should be pulling away from the flesh and should be easy to remove.
Place peeled sweet potatoes, roasted garlic, tahini, cinnamon, and salt and pepper in the bowl of a stand mixer or large mixing bowl. Whip with whisk attachment or with a hand mixer until evenly combined, about 2-3 minutes. Try not to over mix.
Top with more tahini and cinnamon and enjoy!
