250 g orange sweet potato, peeled, chopped
1 tsp light margarine
1 Tbsp reduced-fat grated cheese
1 ¼ tsp extra virgin olive oil
150 g lean pork fillets, trimmed of fat
freshly ground black pepper
140 g Brussels sprouts, trimmed, shredded
1 garlic clove, crushed
6 sage leaves, finely shredded
2 tsp finely chopped parsley
- Cook the sweet potato in a small saucepan of boiling water for 10 minutes or until very tender. Drain and return to the pan. Add the margarine and mash until smooth. Stir in the cheese.
- Meanwhile, heat 1/4 tsp oil in a small non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Season the pork and add to the pan. Cook for 2 minutes each side, or until just cooked. Transfer to a plate, cover loosely with foil to keep warm.
- Heat the remaining oil to the pan. Add the sprouts, garlic and sage leaves. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the water and continue to cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes or until the sprouts are tender. Stir in the parsley.
- Serve the pork with the mash and sprouts.
