This was easy and delicious. I chose to bake the sweet potatoes instead because we just prefer the flavor and I topped with toasted pecans. This is a keeper!

Nice! Thank you, Gena. Now that I have leftovers, on to the sweet potato and chick pea cakes!

Wow this was soo good! I make a lot of vegan recipes and I'm sitting here thinking, how have I not made this before?! I didn't measure anything, head's up, just mixed the boiled sweet potatoes with coconut milk, ginger, salt and pepper and maple syrup to my taste. It's amazing.

I just made these for our dairy-free Thanksgiving dinner. I kept whipping in food processor and adding more of the ingredients to get the balance I thought would go over best with our crowd. Ultimately, added to about 4 lbs sweet potatoes, I ended up using over 1 cup of the coconut milk (canned, full fat) and probably 1/4 cup maple syrup and 2 teaspoons salt. They are delicious. I'm going to top a small batch of them with vegan marshmallows "for the kids". Happy Thanksgiving!

This reminds me of Heidi Swanson's recipe called 'Nikki's sweet potatoes'. In that version, she roasts the potatoes and adds not only the coconut milk but also dried unsweetened coconut and macadamia nuts creating a mash you can use as a side or a dessert! Either way, sweet potatoes and coconut milk is a winner.

When you say "full fat coconut milk" do you mean the canned stuff, or the milk cartons you can get?

How did I never think of adding coconut milk to mashed sweet potatoes? I tried the potatoes before adding the maple syrup and would definitely recommend using it, not so much for the added sweetness but for the added complexity. The coconut milk alone, while not unpleasant, is a bit flat.
