recipe from Lisa @ The Cutting Edge of Ordinary
Garlic & Lime Sweet Potatoes
2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled, halved lengthwise & cut into ½ inch pieces
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
¼ cup olive oil
1 lime, zested and juiced
1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro
In a saucepan over high heat brings the sweet potatoes and enough salted water to cover them to a boil. Cook 10 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain and transfer to bowl.
In a skillet over medium heat cook the garlic in the olive oil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 2 tablespoons lime juice and 1 tablespoon of lime zest and 1 tablespoon of cilantro. Add salt and pepper if you’d like. Pour garlic mixture over the cooked potatoes and toss until coated.
The lime and cilantro give the potatoes a nice zing. You can eat his dish hot or cold. I prefer to chill it and eat it like a cold sweet potato salad.
