Filed under: Vegetarian Recipes — rainbowyoga @ 11:08 pm

1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
3 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon curry powder (more or less, depending on the heat of your spice)
6 pounds sweet potatoes, scrubbed, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
1 cup chopped green onions
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup pecans, toasted, coarsely chopped
1 cup dried fruit (raisins, cherries, apricots, etc.)
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Whisk together olive oil, maple syrup, lime juice, ginger, and curry powder. Set aside.

2. Boil or steam sweet potatoes for about 10 minutes, or until just tender. You can use a huge pot, or just do them in batches.

3. Transfer sweet potatoes to a bowl and let cool to room temperature.

4. Add the remaining ingredients and gently toss with dressing. Let stand for a bit to allow the flavors to mingle. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Makes 12 servings.
