Sweet Potato Mash With Lime

I absolutely love the sweet potato and yam…between the USA and Canada, they appear to mean the opposite, so I will go by colour.

  • 1 large sweet potato (white one)
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. finely grated lime zest
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of freshly grated nutmeg

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prick potato all over and bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet until completely tender if poked with a knife. This normally takes 45-60 minutes.

Remove from oven and slice in half lengthwise to scoop out the flesh.

In a small bowl, mash until smooth and add the remaining ingredients

This would be awsome with roasted chicken or barbecued chicken, using the drippings to drizzle over the potato. If more than 2 people, simply add another sweet potato or two and increase the ingredients accordingly.
