Sweet Potatoes with Lime and Cilantro

This recipe is an eye-opener for those who find sweet potatoes a tad too sweet or those who are tired of eating them smothered in butter and brown sugar. Japanese sweet potatoes, with their pale flesh and delicate flavor, are a treat if you can find them.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30-40 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:
4 sweet potatoes
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
2-3 limes
butter or olive oil, salt (optional)

Directions:
1. Wash the sweet potatoes and bake them whole, in their skins, at 375 degrees until tender, about 40 minutes.
2. Wash and chop cilantro leaves.
3. When sweet potatoes are done, slit open the skin and place on serving plate. Season with salt and dots of  Kerry Gold, organic butter or why not try a  teaspoon per serving of Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil, then squeeze fresh lime juice all over, and sprinkle with cilantro leaves.
