Cilantro-Lime Sweet Potatoes Recipe

This is something my mom makes as a side dish for meats. The sweetness of the potatoes is perfectly complemented by the hint of lime and cilantro! It is wonderful and easy to make. If you like, an additional 2 tablespoons of olive oil can be added to the garlic, cilantro and lime juice mix after roasting.—Jessica Snyder, San Clemente, California
