Mashed Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Garlic and Lime

Yesterday my friend LeAnn asked me if I could come up with another very savory sweet potato dish, similar to my Sweet Potato Home Fries. After thinking about it for a little bit, I had an idea. Coincidentally, I had all of the ingredients I needed and it happened to be close to dinner time. This is a very savory and very unusual dish. My husband said he has never tasted anything like it before. The lime flavor is distinctive and because we roasted the potatoes before mashing the flavors are highlighted even more.

Mashed Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Garlic and Lime
  • 4 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/3 Cup of Restaurant Style Salsa (not chunky, I used homemade)
  • 1 Clove of Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon of Butter
  • 1/2 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil
  • Sea Salt and Pepper to Taste


Chop up sweet potatoes into fairly even cubes.

Finely dice the garlic. Add the potatoes and garlic into a oven safe roasting dish with the coconut oil and butter. Squeeze the lime on top.

Roast at 450 for 20 minutes.

Stir the potatoes. Turn the oven down to 400 and roast another 10 minutes until the edges are brown and the potatoes are fork tender. Take out of the oven. Allow to cool slightly and then add the salsa.

Mash the sweet potatoes until they are the texture you desire. I left mine a little textured.

Serve warm. Enjoy!
