Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, (about 3 medium)
  • 3/4 cup "lite" coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  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.
  3. Tip: MAKE AHEAD TIP: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven just before serving.
