Coconut Sweet Potato Bake
  • 2 1/2 Pds Sweet Potatoes, Peeled and Cubed
  • 3/4 Cup Lite Cocounut Milk
  • 1/3 Cup Sweetened Shredded Coconut, Plus 1 Tbsp Garnish
  • 12 Large Marshmallows

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Meanwhile heat a large pot of water and add sweet potatoes, leaving about an inch of water on top to cover potatoes.  Once water starts to boil reduce the heat and allow to simmer 10-15 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are soft when peirced with a fork.  Drain potatoes and return them to the pot.  Mash down sweet potatoes with a potato masher until desired texture, or somewhat smooth.  Stir in coconut milk and sweetened coconut.  Transfer mix to a round 2-quart baking dish. Circle border of baking dish with marshmallows and sprinkle with remaining coconut.  Place in oven and bake until toasted and golden, about 15 minutes. 

I hate to waste, and there always seems to be some leftovers on the holidays... So I've become pretty good at making additional meals out of the leftovers!

I know! I got lazy! (And there was a lot of crazy shit going on in my life... i.e. Divorce) But sadly enough, I HAVE actually been doing a lot of experimenting in the kitchen lately but haven't been transferring to the community! I'm sorry! :-(
