Sofrito be, you and me

Is there anything the wondrous sweet potato can’t do? I’m so in love with this veggie that I trawl the web seeking out new recipes for this tasty tuber.

Confort food with a kick.

But inspiration came to me via TV one day, in the guise of Guy Fieri and his Food Network show “Guy’s Big Bite.” Usually Guy makes, well, “guy food,” but on one episode he whipped up a side dish involving mashed Yukon potatoes, sofrito, and cilantro. How bad could it be? I opted to use sweet potatoes which I happened to have on hand. Lucky me.

I veganized the recipe by omitting the milk. You can add plain (not vanilla!) soy milk if desired, but I found that the sweet potatoes whipped well without it. Add a dollop of vegan margarine and you’re off. The sweet potatoes already have that beautiful orange-gold color and the cilantro, added at the end, is just the icing on the cake!
