Hot and Spicy Smashed Sweet Potatoes

You can puree these until they are smooth. We prefer them a bit more chunky.

Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 2-1/2 pounds sweet potatoes

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

  • 1/3 cup coconut cream (thick fat on the top of coconut milk when you open a can)

  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Generous pinch of cayenne

  • Generous pinch of salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Prick potatoes all over with a fork and set in a baking dish.

  3. Bake for 1 hour or until potatoes are very tender.

  4. Peel potatoes and place them in a food processor.

  5. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until well-combined.

  6. Serve immediately or make ahead and reheat in a saucepan on the stovetop.
