Curried Sweet Potatoes with Coconut and Honey
I cooked this last evening with Japanese sweet potatoes I bought at K&S world Market. I could have as easily used regular sweet potatoes. I glazed them with a mixture of honey, ghee (Feel free to use butter instead), and red curry paste. Then, before wrapping them in foil and baking them at 350 degrees for an hour, I sprinkled a few teaspoons of very finely shredded coconut over them.
Very tasty. This makes enough for four.
3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1-2 teaspoons red curry paste, depending how spicy you want the glaze.
1/3 cup honey
1/3 -1/2 stick of butter or four or five tablespoons of ghee.
A couple tablespoons of finely shredded coconut.
Salt, to taste.
Melt the honey, the butter, and the curry paste in the microwave. Put the sweet potatoes in a bowl and pour the glaze over them. Toss well to coat. Sprinkle a little salt over them, and then the coconut. Bake in a baking dish with the potatoes sealed in foil.
What would go with this? Ham? Pork loin? Roast Chicken, or turkey? I think any one of them-
