ginger marinated pork with sweet potato puree and greens

We’re always looking for new pork tenderloin recipes. This is easy from the perspective that you can marinate it in the morning and it will be perfect when you get home from work and cooks up relatively quickly. Serve with a side of sautéed greens and a baked sweet potato (pureed). Or if you’re pressed for time, instead of the sweet potato, cook up some quinoa – it only takes about 15 minutes.

The flavor in this recipe is incredible and there is usually enough sauce leftover to save for another dish – think tofu curry, chicken curry, etc.
