Coconut chai mashed sweet potatoes with pecans

Posted: Updated:

Chef Paul shows us how to make a healthier version of mashed sweet potatoes courtesy of Chef Lisa Brisch of Orange Pomegranate.

Serving Quantity: 4

Ingredients:

TOPPING:
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut shreds
1/4 teaspoon Pure and Simple Chai Seasoning

SWEET POTATOES:
3/4 cup canned coconut milk, divided
1 teaspoon Pure and Simple Chai Seasoning
1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled, halved lengthwise, and sliced 1/4" thick

Preparation:
FOR THE TOPPING: Toast pecans in a medium saucepan until fragrant, 3-4 minutes. Add coconut and continue toasting until coconut is golden, 1-2 minutes more. Move this mixture to a small bowl and stir in 1/4 teaspoon Pure and Simple Chai. Set aside.

FOR THE SWEET POTATOES: Wipe out the saucepan. Add 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1 teaspoon Pure and Simple Chai, brown sugar, salt, and sweet potatoes to the saucepan. Cover and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook until potatoes are very tender, stirring occasionally, 35-40 minutes.
Mash with a potato masher. Stir in remaining 1/4 cup coconut milk. Scoop potatoes into a serving bowl or individual plates and top with pecan mixture.

NOTE: Freeze leftover coconut milk. It may separate upon thawing but comes back together when whisked.
