If you prefer your sweet potatoes more on the savory side, this dish is for you. Since the tubers are already naturally sweet, we add just a small drizzle of honey to enhance their flavor. The tahini lends a distinct nuttiness and contributes to the overall creaminess of the dish. We use a food processor because it creates an incredibly smooth texture; you can also mash with a potato masher for a more rustic dish.
