How do I love thee, sweet potato! Every which way!
This recipe is from Vegan Soul Kitchen (a great book!) by Bryant Terry. It's the 2nd time I made it, and I changed it up. First time around, my husband, a self-declared sweet potato hater, walked through and grabbed a big bite of these potatoes after phase 1 of the recipe. He liked them! I went ahead and blended the cooked potatoes with coconut milk as the recipe called for, and they were deeelicious!
This time around, I stopped at phase1 of the recipe so that we could enjoy the sweet potatoes this way! They look good, right? The first part of the recipe is to peel, cube, and bake in agave nectar and coconut oil. They are so good when done, like little nuggets of sweet creamy goodness! I might even prefer them this way over the blended finished recipe. I'm thinking a perfect compromise would be the cubed cooked potatoes with some kind of coconut milk cream or whipped topping. Yummmmy!
