Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Milk

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/mashed_sweet_potatoes_with_coconut_milk.html

From EatingWell:  December 2005/January 2006, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

This three-ingredient dish, known as piele in Hawaii, is fabulously simple. Coconut milk—an occasional indulgence because of the saturated fat—contributes rich flavor.

4 servings, generous 1/2 cup each | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Prick sweet potatoes with a fork in several places. Microwave on High until tender all the way to the center, 10 to 15 minutes. (Alternatively, place in a baking dish and bake at 425 degrees F until tender all the way to the center, about 1 hour.)
  2. When cool enough to handle, peel off and discard skin. Transfer the sweet potatoes to a medium microwaveable bowl and mash thoroughly with a potato masher. Add coconut milk, ginger and salt; stir well. Reheat in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, or in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Serve warm.
