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


1/2 pound Carrots; peeled and chunked
1 pound Sweet potates; peeled & 1 inch cubed
1 cup Banana; cut in chunks (1 large banana)
1/2 cup Pineapple; fresh, diced
1/4 cup Orange juice; or pineapple juice if desired
1 tablespoon honey; to taste
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black pepper; coarse, fresh ground

Original recipe makes 8



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.

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

I thought it would taste a little more fruity. If that asp[ect of the flavour could be enhanced this would be a 5 star recipe. Easy, quick and healthy!
