Another wonderful recipe from Ottolenghi. If you’ve been following me for a while you know he’s my favorite chef.
I share with you a recipe that will be an excellent side dish to accompany turkey for Thanksgiving or any other poultry, this delicious alongside all sorts of things, this sweet potato mash with herbs salsa ans lime will go perfectly with chops or grilled sausages. As the chef suggests In his book “Simple”.
In principle, who says mashed potatoes says butter a lot of it, milk and cream. But this mashed sweet potato is vegan.
First, the sweet potato is roasted in the oven. That way, it retains all of its flavor and the flesh is very soft and easy to reduce it to a silky puree, without containing a lot of water.
Then, the purée is garnished with a sublime salsa. And what makes this puree an exceptional dish is precisely the salsa, composed of basil, coriander, garlic and lime.
The flavors of tangy salsa with the sweetness of sweet potato make it just the perfect dish.
