Great alternative to the overly sweet sweetpotato dishes! I do suggest that you do not waste time in roasting the potatoes - way too much time and effort.
If you have a pot with a steam basket, try this:
Fill pot with water (up to about 2 inches below basket) & start heating it up on the stove. While your water is heating, peel and cut your potatoes into pieces - as uniform as possible - so it cooks evenly. By the time you are done prepping, the water should be just about boiling. Just fill up the basket with your potatoes and place the lid on. It took me about 10 minutes to steam mine, because I cut it into about 1/2 inch squares. You will be able to tell when they are tender enough to mash in the processor and you don't have to wait for them to cool down like you would with baking! Makes the whole first step take about 20 minutes, versus 90+.
I also added about a dozen drops of red pepper sauce (tapatio or you could use tabasco) - not enough to make it spicy, just to impart more depth to the flavor.
