Mango and Sweet Potatoes


I almost forgot, I bought 6 mangoes.  I can't imagine forgetting mangoes considering how much I enjoy them.  Fortunately, I discovered my mangoes, hiding behind something tall and I immediately rescued them.

Over the recent years, I have found that you can add mango to almost any dish.  I was planning a sweet potato dish so that became the target for my mango.  These two blend together beautifully and the flavors have a enough of a contrast they were distinct, in this dish.

I admit to adding brown sugar and there is no way, the sweet potatoes needed it and I recommend, it be made without the sugar.  My husband immediately commented on how sweet the dish was and it was.

Ingredients:
 
4 sweet potatoes, boiled and cut into chunks
2 mangoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 cup brown sugar (omit)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Method:

Preheat oven 350 degrees.

Grease a round baking pan with spray cooking oil.

Combine brown sugar and cinnamon.

Mix together mangoes and sweet potatoes.  Add the brown sugar mixture.  Spray cooking oil on top and bake for 20 minutes.

After this was completed, I thought, it would have been good to add raisins or nuts to the mix.

Eat and enjoy.


Peel yams and cut into 1/4-inch slices; drop into a bowl of water to keep from discoloring. Drain water and transfer to a large pot fitted with a steamer basket. Steam for 10 to 15 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly butter a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Stir together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Place half the yams, mangos, brown sugar mixture and butter in the dish. Repeat layers. (Dish may be covered and refrigerated for up to 24 hours at this point.) Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes; sprinkle with almonds and cook for 20 minutes more. - See more at: http://www.mango.org/recipe/mango-and-almond-yams#sthash.WJy4HOqZ.dpuf
