December 5th, 2011 No Comments » Posted in Fall, recipes


1 ½ pounds delicotta squash (or any winter squash), cut into 1” cubes
, 2-3 tsp Kosher salt, 
1-2 Tbsp sugar
, 2 cups coconut milk, 
2 cups water
, 2 sweet potatoes, cut into 1” cubes
Cilantro sprigs, to garnish


Place squash, salt, sugar, coconut milk and water in a large heavy bottomed saucepot.  The squash should be covered by about ¾.  Bring to a boil, and turn down to a simmer.  Cook uncovered until softened, at least 15 minutes.  Add the sweet potatoes, and cook until tender. Liquid should be thick and reduced.
Taste for seasoning.  The dish should be a little sweet, a little salty, and creamy.
Garnish with the cilantro sprigs.

Serves 4
