Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Cilantro Pistachio Pesto

A great alternative to a traditional potato side dish.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet. Toss with oil, seasonings and half of the lime zest. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tender and caramelized.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare pesto: In a food processor, combine garlic, cilantro, parmesan, 1 cup pistachios, lime juice and olive oil until desired consistency is reached. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Roughly chop remaining ¼ cup pistachios.
  5. Toss warm potatoes with pesto. To serve, sprinkle potatoes with remaining pistachios and lime zest.
