Preheat oven to 200C / 400F and line a baking tray with baking paper/foil. Wash and dry the potatoes. Using a fork, pierce the potatoes several times, on both sides. Place in the oven and roast for around 50 mins (checking after 45 mins), or until the potato is wrinkled and tender. Allow the sweet potatoes to cool for around 10 minutes, peel the potato and place the flesh in a food processor. Blend until smooth.
If using large sweet potatoes, cut in half, lengthways, before roasting.
The length of time needed will depend on the size and thickness of the potato.
