  • 2-3 pounds sweet potatoes (roasted and peeled)
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil (liberal swig)
  • 2-3 tablespoons tahini (liberal swig)
  • salt (to taste)
  • ½ lemon (juiced, optional)
  • spices (optional, we love it with furikake, just how Philip makes it!)


  • Roast your sweet potatoes until the skins are easy to peel! Depending on the size of the potato, you can generally get this roasted at 350 degrees in under an hour.
  • Cool, peel and mash.
  • Add a big ole swig of olive oil, a big ole chunk of tahini, and a bit of salt.
  • Add lemon if you’d like, and mix.
  • Top with your favorite seeds and seasonings on a piece of toast!


Big thanks to our friend Philip Tang!
