How to make Gingerly mashed sweet potatoes with lime



1. Place potatoes in large saucepan fill with enough cold water to cover by 1 inch. Add salt and garlic, bring water to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender (should be easily pierced by paring knife) about 8 minutes.

2. Meanwhile in small skillet, heat the oil before adding the ginger, shallot, and chile. Sauté until soft and fragrant, stirring frequently for about two minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

3.When the potatoes are done, drain (retaining a slight amount of water for mashing consistency) and return them to the pot along with the garlic. Add the cooked ginger mixture, earth balance, maple syrup, cilantro and lime juice. Mash to desired consistency. Season a little with sea salt and pepper and serve.

Eat well and enjoy.
