Servings: 3 Cups
- 3 large sweet potatoes about 12 ounces each
- 1/3 cup lite coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger or ginger paste*
- ¼ teaspoon salt
Pierce the sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Cook in the microwave on HIGH until tender when pierced with a fork, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Let the potatoes rest until cool enough to handle.
Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop the flesh out of the potatoes and place in a medium-sized bowl. Add the coconut milk, ginger and salt.
Using a hand mixer, mix until the potato mixture is smooth. Alternatively, use the back of a fork or a potato masher.

*I use the Gourmet Garden stir-in ginger paste, which is sold in the herb and produce section of most grocery stores.
