Lime-Cilantro Sweet Potato Mash

Pin It My mom loves potatoes. A lot of people I know love potatoes. I don't. I don't dislike them either, I just think they are quite plain and boring. My uncle makes some roasted potatoes every Christmas that I really like. That's when I can say I enjoy eating potatoes. Too bad I can't spend every Christmas with my family, but that's another story......
Now.....sweet potatoes are an entirely different thing. They are tastier and the colour makes me want to eat them!

I found this recipe at migthyfoods, a great site I visit often to find out about food information, nutrition as well as recipes. I like the idea of adding lime and cilantro to the sweet potato mash. It balances its the sweetness. I also added some feta on top for extra flavour. This is a very nice side dish, or on my case, a meal by itself, just accompanied by a small salad.

Lime-Cilantro Sweet Potato Mash Recipe:

Cook the potato as usual (peeled, cubed) in cold water until tender. Drain, return to pot and mash. Add some butter (about 1 tbsp for each potato), mix well. Stir in chopped cilantro and a squirt of fresh lime juice. You can add as much or as little lime as you want. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top it with some feta cheese.
