Ingredients

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Directions

  1. Scrub and pierce potatoes; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 10-12 minutes or until tender, turning once.
  2. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp, leaving thin shells. In a large bowl, mash the pulp with coconut milk. Stir in the syrup, ginger, adobo sauce and salt. Spoon into potato shells.
  3. Place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with pecans and coconut. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
