Rustic Sweet Potato Mash

IMG_3109

Still in detox! Have to say this has been hard. I’m learning a lot about myself and my relationship with food, and its been an interesting ride. Tonight we get to eat fish (at this stage we can eat fish every 3 days! yay!) but this recipe will not be about fish, but its side dish. Since truffle oil is a very strong ingredient, I’m using 1 tsp. If you want a more prominent truffle oil flavour, add more, but very little at a time.

Ingredients (serves 2)

3 medium sized sweet potatoes

salt & black pepper to taste

1 tsp white truffle oil

2 tbsp olive oil

juice of 1 Meyer lemon

1/2 tsp garlic powder

chives for sprinkling on top.

Directions

Boil the sweet potatoes (with the skin) in water, until tender when pinched with a fork. Around 25 minutes. Discard the water and let sweet potatoes to cool.

Once they are at room temperature, peel the skin. Cut them in chunks and place them in a medium sized bowl. Add the oils, salt, pepper, lemon juice and garlic powder, and smash the sweet potato with a fork or a potato masher until desired consistency is acquired. If you want a more silky texture, add more olive oil. Sprinkle with chives before serving


Pure rustico de Camotes

Todavia sigo en detox! Tengo que decir que esto ha sido duro. Estoy aprendiendo un wonton acerca e mi y mi relation con la comida y ha sido un paseo interesante. Esta noche podemos comer pescado (en esta etapa podemos comer pescado cada 3 dias! yay!) pero este post no es acerca del pescado, sino de su acompanamiento. Ya que el aceite de trufas es muy fuerte, solo estoy usando 1 cucharadita. Si quieres un sabor mas prominente de aceite de trufas, agrégale mas, pero de a poquito.

Ingredientes (para 2)

3 camotes medianos

sal y pimienta negra al gusto

1 cucharadita de aceite de trufas

2 cucharadas de aceite de oliva

jugo de 1 limon amarillo

1/2 cucharadita de ajo en polvo

cebollinas picaditas para decorar

Direcciones

Hierve los camotes con la piel, en agua por 25 minutos aproximadamente (hasta que esten suaves cuando insertas un tenedor) . Bota el agua y deja los camotes enfriar.

Una vez esten a temperatura ambiente, quitales la piel. Cortalos en trozos y ponlos en un bol mediano. Agrega los aceites, sal, pimienta, jugo de lemon y ajo en polvo y majalos haciendo un pure hasta que obtengas la consistencia deseada. Si quieres una textura mas suave, agrega un poco mas de aceite de oliva. Espolvoreale la cebollina encima antes de servir.
