Mashed Potato Iron Chef Challenge: Sweet and Savory Frozen Sweet Potato Tarts

The mashed potato Vegan MoFo Iron Chef Challenge turned out to be a great way to clean out my fridge and pantry.


For the Crust:

1/3 cup raw hazelnuts
1 cup raw walnuts
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 clove garlic
fresh ground nutmeg, to taste
fresh cracked pepper, to taste
3 tbsp coconut oil

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until nuts are ground to small crumbs. Divide mixture in 4 mini-tart pans and freeze

For the Filling:

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
3/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 piece of ginger, grated
1/2 tsp kosher salt
dash cayenne
fresh ground nutmeg, to taste
fresh cracked pepper, to taste

Boil sweet potatoes in salted water until soft. Drain and rinse in cold water. Add remaining ingredients and mash, leaving mixture chunky. Transfer potatoes to bowl and chill in freezer for 1 hour. Churn in ice cream maker until firm. Fill crusts and serve.

  2. @Mandee I considered putting garlic in the filling instead too, but I was worried about my ice cream maker having a permanent garlic flavor

    @JoLynn Let me know how they turn out and thanks 🙂
