Delish or Dull: Cajun-Spiced Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Monday, December 14, 2009

I was looking for a new and different recipe to try.. and I came across this. What do you think? Delish or dull?

Mashed Sweet Potatoes
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2" pieces
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/3 cup milk
Cajun seasoning to taste
salt to taste

1. Place the sweet potatoes in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring the potatoes to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer about 20 to 30 minutes, until the potatoes are done. Check by piercing with a fork; there should be no resistance. Drain well.
2. Mash the sweet potatoes with a potato masher or fork, or use a food mill.
3. Add the lime juice and stir well. Add the milk and stir. Add Cajun seasoning and salt, to taste.

Makes four 1/2 cup servings.
