Delicious Sweet Potatoes

I just love sweet potatoes. I'm happy to say that they are very nutritious. As with other vegetables, the deeper their color, the better they are for you. This recipe is easy, and one of my favorite ways to serve this delicious veggie. It goes especialy well with pork, and is a good foil for spicy barbecue.

If you make these a bit sweeter, and add nuts and whipped cream, they are just wonderful chilled for dessert. This saves the calories of putting them in a pie crust, and is still nutritious.

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 15-oz. can of coconut milk (not the thicker, sweet, coconut creme)
  • 1 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. finely minced crystallized ginger, optional

Directions:

Mix everything but the ginger in a saucepan. Simmer, covered, about 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender, stirring often. Stir in the ginger. Serve.

This is also very good cooked with more brown sugar and the addition of roughly chopped pecans. When tender, chill, and serve with unsweetened whipped cream and a sprinkling of coconut.
