Here’s the recipe for my Mashed Yams with Coconut that was featured for October’s #twittersweetpotatoparty.
1 cup of coconut milk (approximate)
1 stick of softened butter
salt to taste
goat cheese (optional)
Wash the yams then bake the yams with skins on at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until tender in the middle. I poke the largest one with a chopstick. If it’s still tough I continue baking for another 15 to 20 minutes.
While still warm, remove the skins, then cut into chunks.
Place in a bowl with the butter. Start mashing and slowly add the coconut milk until you get the desired consistency. I like it thicker for packing in a bento and creamier for eating right away!
Add salt to taste.
Garnish with crumbled goat cheese.
And speaking of Twitter… We haven’t selected a theme for next month’s #twitterfoodparty. Any suggestions?
