OMGSH I dont know what has been going on but I am coming up with all these new recipes and ideas. I am finding this happens most when I need to go grocery shopping and all I have left are these miscellaneous ingredients. Its kind of like being on the food network chopped tv series.

In my kitchen I have a basket on the counter for all my produce I feel it helps inspire me lol. There were 3 sweet potatoes left and I had no clue what I wanted to do with them… Ya I could have made sweet potatoes with brown sugar and marshmallows.  Snooze, how boring right? So I decided to put a thai asian twist on them.


  • 3 Sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 can coconut milk
  • 1/2C. toasted coconut flakes
  • 1/4-1/2C. golden raisins
  • 2-3 pinches of ginger
  • 3 pinches of cayenne pepper (whatever your spicy preference is)
  • Optional- I like to add 1/2 TBSP of paprika but its up to you…
  • 1-2 TBSP sugar free butter flavor pancake syrup
  • 2-3TBSP honey
  • 1 curry cube
  • Optional- bran nuts or some other health add in


Boil the sweet potatoes until tender, drain, and mash in a bowl.

Add all in the ingredients and mix together. I had a box of leftover bran nuts and decided to add about 1/2 C. to give it a little crunch. My favorite thing about this dish is how versatile it is. When you make it you can add or take out whatever you want. You can add toasted nuts, use another dried fruit, use a crunchy chopped fruit such as an apple, you could use leftover granola, etc. Be creative and add your own little twist!

This is such a weird an unusual side dish for me to make but I hope you enjoy it. I dont usually cook too many asian dishes.
