The BEST Sweet Potatoes Ever

I had the pleasure of dining on the most scrumptious sweet potatoes this past Thanksgiving.  My friend Amelia got the recipe from NPR, where they promised we’d ‘love them.’  And love them we did!  They are actually vegan and a nice break from the traditional dish which is typicaly covered in lots of marshallow and brown sugar.  The trick is coconut milk.  Enjoy!

Here is the link to the recipe.

You may be a bit worried about the fat profile of coconut milk, which is actually a highly debated topic among dietitians and nutritionists.  I can assure you that an approrpriate portion (1/2-1 cup) will not be harmful to your heart health.  And you can even buy Light Coconut Milk at many shops in Cambridge including Trader Joes, Whole Foods, and even Market Basket!
