Asian Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Prep/Cook Time: 30 minutes Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients:

· 2 large sweet potatoes, cut into 1 ½ inch cubes

· 2 cloves garlic, minced

· 1 inch fresh ginger, grated

· 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil

· 1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar or white vinegar

· 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

· 2 teaspoons Sriracha

· ¼ cup orange juice

· 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

· Black pepper to taste

· Sesame seeds (optional, nice for texture)

Directions:

1. Fill a medium sized saucepan with water and cubed sweet potatoes and bring to a boil.

2. Cook sweet potatoes until fork tender (about 15-20 minutes) then drain well in a colander and set aside.

3. In a medium sized skillet, sauté the garlic & ginger in the sesame oil for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

4. Add the cooked sweet potatoes and mash with a potato masher or a fork until all large clumps are soft.

5. Next add in the vinegar, parmesan cheese, sriracha, and orange juice. Continue to mix or mash until all ingredients are blended well.

7. Finally add the chopped cilantro and optional sesame seeds and serve.
