Sweet Potatoes with Cilantro

For Thanksgiving dinner I decided to make a sweet potato dish and give it a twist by adding cilantro and lemon. It really turned out well I think. Hope you enjoy it too!

Sweet Potatoes with Cilantro (serves 6):

  • 3 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup of Cilantro / coriander
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup minced garlic

Peel sweet potatoes, chop into small cubes and lay out on a baking sheet. Generously pour olive oil over potatoes and mix in minced garlic making sure each piece is coated with oil and garlic. Bake for 30 minutes ar 425 Fahrenheit. Mix in cilantro and lemon juice.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a North American holiday which celebrates the fall harvest season. Canadian Thanksgiving falls on the second monday of October each year. It is a time for family and friends to gather and reflect on who and what they are thankful for. The main course of the meal is typically turkey with side dishes made of fall harvest vegetables such as squash and sweet potatoes. The meal is followed by pumpkin pie or apple pie for dessert. 

Happy Thanksgiving to my friends and family near and far! I am grateful to have you all in my life.
