This adds a tropical twist to the classic recipe. Goes well with any spicy or grilled dishes. Fast and easy to make.

Preparation

In a pot of boiling water, add the carrots and boil for about 3 minutes. Then add the sweet potato cubes and cook until both are tender (about 10 - 12 minutes).

Drain and dump into a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mash lightly. You want a somewhat chunky texture. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as desired.

Serve with grilled meat or other spicy Caribbean dishes.

Notes

We made this to go with Poc-Chuc (Grilled pork) and a red onion relish. It offset the spiciness of the relish nicely.
