Twice Baked Sweet Potato
1 large sweet potato (the meat is a light yellowish, not to be confused with the orange meat Yam)
2 TBSP smart balance or coconut oil
1/4 cup So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut milk
a handful of fresh chives, cut into small pieces
2 strips bacon, cut into small pieces and cooked well
Start by cleaning the potato and making steam holes all over it with a fork. Cook in the microwave until tender, just as skin begins to wrinkle.
When it's cool enough to handle, cut off the top 1/4 of the potato. Scoop out the meat into a bowl and combine with smart balance, milk, chives, bacon and season with salt, pepper and cili powder. Return all to the inside of the potato and wrap in foil leaving the top open. Bake in the oven at 350 until slightly browned on top.
Perfect for making ahead of time and refrigerating until dinner.
