SWEET POTATO MOUSSE … a recipe for Andrew



There is a young man in our family with the soul of a poet, the eye of an artist and the dark, handsome look of a young Lord Byron.  What makes him truly outstanding he shows his heart when he cooks.  Love of cooking comes from the heart.

Last night a phone call asking me for my sweet potato mousse recipe, and why wasn’t it on my blog.  He and his partner were entertaining very dear friends and wanted to cook something very special.  He was cooking from the heart.  Now I will share this recipe with you.  Do make it soon.

Sweet Potato Mousse – serves 4

4 medium large sweet potatoes      4 tablespoons butter,      salt and freshly ground black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, two eggs.

Roast your sweet potatoes.  When cooked remove the skins while still warm.  In your standing mixer with whip add the potatoes, butter and seasonings and whip well.  When the potatoes are cool enough add the two eggs and whip well.  Pour the mixture into a three-four inch casserole dish.  Bake at 350 degrees until lightly brown on top.  Don’t over bake.  Remember the potatoes are already cooked and you are now cooking the egg mixture so think delicate thoughts.

  1. I wonder if it’s the same young man, who at the age of 3, turned to my 8 year old son while sitting on a rock at the lake, stared into his eyes and mused aloud “T, your eyes are just like blueberries”.

    Will try your sweet potato mousse, yum.

  2. I love the blueberry eyes! This is a nourishing dish and would make a lovely lunch dish with a generous salad. And, yes that would be the same young man, who at eight years old welded a mean pizza paddle in our PASSIONATE PIZZA store in Vancouver
