This easy side dish can be served next to holiday turkey or with a weeknight meatloaf. Steam sweet and russet potatoes until tender, then mash in lots of spicy fresh ginger, butter, honey, and cardamom.
- 1Fill a large pot with 1 inch of water and bring it to a boil over high heat. Set a steamer basket inside and reduce the heat to low so the water is simmering.
- 2Peel and cut the sweet and russet potatoes into large dice. Place them in the steamer, cover with a tightfitting lid, and steam until fork-tender, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, place the remaining measured ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat, season with pepper, and stir until the butter and honey have melted. Remove from the heat and set aside.
- 3When the potatoes are ready, transfer them to a large bowl, drizzle with the butter mixture, and mash with a potato masher to the desired consistency. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
