Ingredients

  • ½ cup water
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
  • ½ cup full fat or lite coconut milk
  • 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin spice mix
  • Pinch sea salt
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts, optionally toasted in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Place the coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin spice mix, and salt in a small bowl and whisk well.
  • 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.
  • Top with any of the coconut milk mixture left in the dish, as well as the chopped walnuts before serving.
