Sweet Potatoes with Lime and Cilantro:
This recipe is an eye-operner for those who find sweet potatoes cloyingly sweet or who are tired of eating them smothered in marshmallows and brown sugar. Japanese sweet potatoes, with their pale flesh and delicate flavor, are a treat if you can find them.Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30-40 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients:
4 sweet potatoes
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
2-3 limes
butter and salt, optional

Directions:
1. Wash the sweet potatoes and bake them whole, in their skins, at 375 until tender.
2. Wash and chop cilantro leaves.
3. When sweet potatoes are done, slit open the skin and place on serving plate. Season with salt and dots of butter, if you like. Then squeeze fresh lime juice all over, and shower with cilantro leaves.
