Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk, plus 2/3 cup, divided
  • 2 tablespoons crème fraîche, or sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, or granulated onion
  • Pinch of salt, plus 3/4 teaspoon, divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 small leek, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced, white and light green parts only
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives

Preparation

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Combine 1 tablespoon buttermilk, crème fraîche (or sour cream), onion powder (or granulated onion) and pinch of salt. Cover and refrigerate while you cook the vegetables.
  3. Add potatoes, sweet potatoes and leek to the boiling water and return to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a vigorous simmer and cook until tender enough to pierce with a knife, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and return the vegetables to the pan (off the heat).
  4. Add the remaining 2/3 cup buttermilk, the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, butter and pepper to the pan; coarsely mash with a potato masher. Serve topped with the sauce and chives.

Tips & Notes

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare sauce (Step 2) and vegetables (Steps 1 & 3), cover and refrigerate separately for up to 1 day. Reheat vegetables, covered, in the microwave or a double boiler before continuing with Step 4.
