Mashed YUMS!

I mean, yams! When we were in Boston, I had some really awesome mashed yams, and decided to try to make them again today. Super easy, and super yummy!!

Mashed Yams:

4 yams, peeled and chopped
2 tsp. pure maple syrup
1 c. coconut milk (see below)
2 Tbsp. margarines
1 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg

Peel and chop up your yams. Then add to a large pot of boiling water, and cook until soft. Drain. Return to the pot with the margarine. Start mashing! Add the maple syrup, and mash some more. Then add some coconut milk, about 1/4 c. at a time. Mash! Mash! MASH!

Grate the nutmeg over the top, and mix well. Trust me here, the nutmeg really makes this dish!

Serve hot

Now about these ingredients...

Once you start using real maple syrup, you will never look back to that crap that's mostly HFCS. I kid you not. It may be really expensive, but it's the ONLY thing to put on waffles, and it adds just a tiny bit of maple flavor to this dish.

This stuff? Is great. I found a coupon for it the other day and decided to try it out. I used it instead of coconut milk+ agave necter+ water in the curry we made last night (Posting to come), and it was perfect. You can drink it, and it's just like the "vanilla milk" my mom used to make when I was a kid. Really tasty!

Some yams... not done with the mashing quite yet.

All done!
