4 - 6
1⁄2 cup water
2 large sweet potatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
1⁄2 cup Natural Grocers Brand Organic Original Coconut Milk, full fat or lite
2 tablespoons Natural Grocers Brand Organic Grade A Dark Maple Syrup
1⁄2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1⁄2 teaspoon Natural Grocers Bulk Brand Pumpkin Spice
  pinch Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Real Salt
1⁄4 cup coarsely chopped Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Organic Walnuts, optionally toasted in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place the water in a 9 inch by 13 inch casserole dish. Add the sweet potatoes, cut side on the top. Cover with aluminum foil, being sure not to have the foil contact the food,  and bake until just tender, approximately 45 minutes, depending upon the size of the sweet potatoes. Remove from the oven.
  2. Place the coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin spice mix, and salt in a small bowl and whisk well.
  3. Poke some holes in the sweet potatoes with a fork. Pour the coconut milk mixture over the potatoes and return to the oven. Bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and place potatoes on a serving dish.
  4. Top with any of the coconut milk mixture left in the dish, as well as the chopped walnuts before serving.

 

Variations
