Sweet Potato Coconut Mash
Serves: Makes 10 servings
  • 5 medium sweet potatoes (3½ to 4 lb), peeled and cut into ¾-inch pieces
  • ¾ cup light coconut milk
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ⅛ tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • ⅓ cup unsalted pecan halves, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add sweet potatoes, return to boiling and cook until soft, about 10 minutes. Drain and transfer potatoes to the bowl of a food processor or stand mixer (or use a large bowl and a hand-held electric mixer).
  2. Add coconut milk, cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup, salt, and black pepper to potatoes. Mix on medium until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl once or twice. Transfer to a 9 x 9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle pecans evenly over sweet potato mixture.
  3. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until edges are slightly browned. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes and serve.
