    Lene's Note:

    This makes a lovely change from everyday mash and can be served in exactly the same way. I like to throw the coriander into the pan of boiling sweet potatoes for just a few seconds before I drain them. It somehow softens the flavour a little while fixing the colour at a lovely bright green.

      Good blend of flavors! I used nonfat sour cream and the cilantro raw - and they went well with it. I sprinkled a little chipotle chile powder into it too to give it a tiny kick, it was also quite yummy like that as well.

      This was delicious! We made it with Elegant Lavender and Lemon Poached Chicken Breasts and the two complemented each other perfectly.

      Fantastic!! I served this mash with our Easter dinner and it was a hit. We are big fans of a more savory, "non-sweet" sweet potato dish and this one was on the money. I admit to adding about 4 additional cloves of garlic and some chili powder for a little spice. Garnished with additional cilantro and some paprika and this was beautiful and wonderfully delicious. Loved the flavor combination and no ingredient over powered the next, it was just lovely. Thank you for a wonderful recipe we will add into our regular menu rotation!
