April was definitely a sweet potato month for me. Spring arrived, but let’s be real. It was damn cold several days this month, and there weren’t nearly enough Spring goodies at the farmers market (though I was delighted at the arrival of spinach). But sweet potato is amazing anytime of year.
I had never heard of Irish colcannon, but when I saw this healthier adaption of it, I had to whip some up for myself. Mashed sweet potato with kale mixed in, topped with crumbled crispy bacon, fresh rosemary, and a nice pat of butter…heaven. I made a meal out of it.
