Prep time: approximately 15 minutes
Cook time: 20–25 minutes
Total time: approximately 40 minutes
Serving size: ½ cup
For garnish (optional):
Peel and cube all potatoes. Remove the stem from the cauliflower and break into florets. Add potatoes and cauliflower to a large pot. Fill the pot with enough water to cover the ingredients by 1–2 inches. Salt the water, bringing to a boil, then cook uncovered over medium heat until you can pierce a large cube of sweet potato easily, approximately 20–25 minutes.
Drain the water, leaving about ¼ cup in the pot. Mash the mixture with a potato masher. Add the milk (more or less, depending on desired texture) and butter. For a thicker texture, add less liquid. For a whipped or creamier texture, add more liquid. Mix with a spoon or, using an electric or manual beater, whip to a desired consistency.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with chopped chives. Serve.
