½ cup finely chopped onion

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

 

2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely shredded, preferably using the grating disk of a food processor

Kosher salt

½ teaspoon smoked paprika

1/3 cup toasted chopped pistachios

1/3 cup chopped dried dates

1½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice

In a large skillet, cook the onion in the oil over medium heat, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the paprika, pistachios, dates, lemon juice and mint; add salt to taste.
