Coconut-Curry Mashed Sweet Potatoes
pounds sweet potatoes
cup unsweetened light or reduced-fat coconut milk
teaspoon curry powder
teaspoon crushed red pepper
tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro or basil
- Peel sweet potatoes; cut into 2-inch pieces. In a covered large saucepan cook potatoes in enough boiling, lightly salted water to cover about 20 minutes or until tender; drain. Mash potatoes with a potato masher or beat with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth.
- Pour coconut milk into a medium microwave-safe bowl. Cover with vented plastic wrap. Microwave on 70 percent power (medium-high) for 20 to 30 seconds or until milk is heated through but not boiling. Stir in curry powder, salt, and crushed red pepper. Stir in mashed potatoes until light and fluffy.
- To serve, sprinkle coconut and cilantro over potatoes.
