  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Roughly chop the purple sweet potatoes (with skin on) and add them to the boiling water for about 30 minutes or until they are soft enough to mash with a fork.
  3. Drain the water and then add the coconut milk, tahini, sesame oil, spices, and sesame seeds to the pot with the drained potatoes.
  4. Mash the potatoes with a fork or potato masher until you achieve desired consistency.*
  5. Top the mashed potatoes with more sesame seeds and a drizzle of sesame oil if desired.


*Alternatively to mashing by hand, you can add it all to a food processor, mixer, or blender for super smooth potatoes.
