|Mashed Batatas, White Sweet Potato|
The white sweet potato, referred to as the "Batata" in my neighborhood, can be found at most Caribbean and Asian markets. Here is a recipe that is unique and simple to prepare.
2 medium sized sweet potatoes, white variety
1/4 of coconut or low fat milk
1 Lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon of lemon rind
1 teaspoon cardamon (optional)
1. Cook whole potatoes in a pressure cooker for 15 minutes or cut up into pieces and boil until soft.
2. Peel skin off with your hands while rinsing with cold water.
3. Place in a mixing bowl.
3. Add the coconut or milk, lemon juice, lemon rind, and cardamon to the bowl.
4. With a hand held blender, mix all of the ingredients together, until fluffy.
