Method – For the puree

Wash the sweet potatoes with their skin on, very well to remove all soil. Put them in a saucepan with plenty of cold water and boil for about 30 minutes until soft. Meanwhile, finely chop the carrots with the onion and garlic and sauté them in a saucepan with olive oil. 

Pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork and if they are soft, remove from the heat. Remove them immediately from the boiling water.

Leave them to cool for a while and while they are still hot, peel them or open them in the middle and then scrape out the flesh with a spoon.
