Don’t mistake a sweet potato for a yam. We promise, there is a difference, and you’d taste it in this recipe.

How to Make It

Step 1

Step 2

Scrape out flesh; discard the skin. Purée flesh in a food processor with 2 1/2 TBSP olive oil, warm water, grated cheese, ginger, cumin, salt, and pepper.

Step 3

To serve: Drizzle with remaining olive oil and garnish with sea salt.
