Sweet Potato Polenta
|Title:||Sweet Potato Polenta|
2 large sweet potatoes
2 cups plus 1/4 cup light soy milk or skim milk
2 cups water
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup polenta or cornmeal
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a nonstick baking pan, bake sweet potatoes until tender. (Try to do this ahead of time because it takes 45 minutes to 1 hour.)
Once they are cool, use a spoon to scoop flesh into a bowl and mash lightly with 1/4 cup of the milk. Set aside.
In a large pot, combine remaining milk, water, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Whisk in polenta or cornmeal. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, about 20 minutes, until mixture is thick enough for a spoon to stand upright in it.
Stir mashed potatoes into pot, mixing well.
Makes about 6 cups.
