Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Mash with Caramelized Onions
by Sarah Farsh November 15, 2012

  • 2 sweet potatoes, baked and skins removed
  • 1 small sugar pumpkin, seeded, baked and skin removed
  • 2 small yellow onions, sliced thin
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried lemon peel
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • optional: 2 tbsp olive oil for caramelizing onions
Heat up a skillet (using the optional olive oil) and saute onions on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 15 - 20min. If you are not using oil, you can use water to make sure the onions don't stick together. Follow my dry saute directions here. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mash potatoes and pumpkin together, adding all spices. You may use a hand blender, fork, or Vitamix. Top with the caramelized onions.
