Sesame-Lime Sweet Potato Spinach Mash

A mouthful to say, and an even bigger fullness to the taste.


  • 4 sweet potatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp rock salt
  • 1 lime
  • 6 Tbs.
  • Sesame Seeds
  • 1 pound of fresh spinach, well-washed and chopped
  • 1/4 cup coconut shavings
  • 1 Tbs. ghee or olive oil
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil

Boil the sweet potatoes until soft. I wash them well and leave the skins on for added nutrients, but you can also peel them for better mouth-feel.  In a cast iron pan (or other pan), roast the coconut shavings and sesame seeds until golden brown, remove from pan and set aside. Sauté the spinach in a little ghee until soft, but still very green. Once potatoes are soft, strain and mash. Stir the cooked spinach into the mash. Drizzle with lime juice and toasted sesame oil, and decoratively cover in the sesame-coconut mix.
