Mashed and Baked Sweet Potatoes

Summer in Suzhou ended two days ago. Like, literally last Sunday we went to the park to play, and after three hours in 30°C morning sun my skin felt a little bit sunburnt. Today though, temperature dropped, its rainy and greyish. Autumn has finally come. Another sign of autumn: street vendors already changed their carts. Instead of cold noodles, you can now get half a dollar, big and delicius, street-baked sweet potatoes. Yestarday I decided to bring some of its amazing flavour to my own home.

.
Ingredients:
4 medium sized sweet potatoes
1/4 cup coconut milk
olive oil to drizzle
salt, pepper to season
2-3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
coliander to garnish
 .
.
 Preheat the oven to 200°C. Wash the potatoes and pierce a few times with a fork. Put them on a baking sheet or a silicone mat and bake for about 45 minutes.
 .
Check whether the potatoes are soft. If so, take out of the oven, let cool for a few minutes, cut in halves lenghtwise. Take out the inside, and put into small bowl. Leave about 1mm of the potato.
 .
Brush the skins with olive oil, put to the oven to grill for about 5 minutes. In the meantime, mash the potatoes with coconut milk, salt and pepper.

Take the skins out of the oven, fill with mashed potatoes, sprinks some parmesan cheese over it, and put into the oven again, for about 10 minutes.
 .
 Garnish with coliander and enjoy! 🙂
