Enjoying your Spring so far??
I enjoy cooking so i am bringing you another recipe. Spring for me is the time for enjoying lunch outside. This potato mash is absolutely perfect for lunch while sipping tea. (But I love this for snack for cocktail parties as well.)
- 3 Sweet Potatoes
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- ⅔ Cup Feta Cheese – Cubed
- 3 tbsp dry tomatoes
Chop and wash the sweet potato, then cook for 12 mins. Steam or boil until they are tender. The potatoes can be steamed to preserve more of the flavor and vitamins. Once cooled place the sweet potatoes in a large bowl and mash by hand with a fork. Add the feta, olive oil, dry tomatoes. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Mix gently and serve on toast.
Sweet potato is a powerful nutritional punch. The rich orange colour indicates that they are high in carotenoids like beta carotene, which is the precursor to vitamin A. It has more than 4 times of your daily needs for vitamin A, in one medium potato. They have got more grams of natural sugars than regular potato but more overall nutrients with fewer calories.
