Crushed sweet potato

By Meeghan, 9 June, 2009

Sweet potato is a root vegetable which is only distantly related to the potato. It is a very healthy vegetable; an excellent source of Vitamin A, a very good source of Vitamin C and a good source of dietary fibre, Vitamin B6 and iron. It also has significant antioxidant properties.

Recipe sourced from Stephanie Alexander—The Cooks Companion.

Bake a whole sweet potato at 180°C until tender, then split it open and scoop out the flesh. Crush roughly with a little butter and add lime juice and freshly chopped coriander leaves to taste. Season and serve with grilled fish and broccoli.
