2 teaspoons chopped cilantro
1-1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
¼ teaspoon sriracha
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin

Sweet Potato-Kale Mash

4 cups roasted Hannah sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon butter or vegan buttery sticks (such as Earth Balance Soy Free)
2 cups chopped kale


  1. Preheat oven to 200-degrees F.
  2. To make salsa, combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat cast-iron skillet or heavy-bottomed sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add kale and cook until soft. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together onion powder and granulated garlic. To the hot skillet, add and melt 1 tablespoon butter. Add mushroom steaks. Place a smaller cast iron skillet on mushrooms to press mushrooms flat. Cook for 3 minutes. Turn steaks over and season with half of the onion powder and granulated garlic mixture, pinch of salt, and pinch of pepper. Press again and cook for 2 minutes. Flip mushrooms onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Season the other side with remaining onion powder and granulated garlic mixture, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of pepper. Place in oven to slow roast 15-20 minutes.
  5. Combine potatoes, 1 tablespoon butter, and kale in a microwave-safe bowl. Place in microwave and reheat just until hot.
  6. Divide potatoes between 2 bowls. Top each with 2 mushroom steaks and garnish with salsa. Enjoy!
