Why I Love This Recipe

This is so good that you will eat it with a spoon savoring each morsel. Great for the holidays.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 ½ lb. sweet potatoes, peeled, diced into 2” cubes
1 can (14.5 oz) coconut milk
1 cup water
¼ cup brown sugar
4 T. unsalted butter, melted
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 T. fresh ginger, minced
1 T. jalapeno, seeded, diced
1 T. fresh lime juice
1 t. kosher salt


Cook sweet potatoes in coconut milk, water and brown sugar for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Mash by hand for a chunky texture, and then stir in the butter.

Stir cilantro mixture into the potatoes along with salt.
