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.
- 1 kg sweet potato
- 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
- 15 g fresh coriander
- 4 tablespoons creme fraiche or 4 tablespoons sour cream

Directions See How It's Made
- Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil.
- Peel and cube the potatoes and add to the pan with the garlic.
- Return to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes until tender.
- Add the coriander and cook for 10 seconds; drain well, then return to the pan.
- Set the pan over a gentle flame and stir with a wooden spoon for 1-2 minutes to evaporate any excess water, but be careful not to let the potatoes catch and burn on the bottom of the pan.
