Vegan Sweet Potato, Coconut Milk, & Roasted Chili Ravioli from Reclaiming Provincial


Honestly, if you’re too lazy to make ravioli, just make this filling and eat it like mashed potatoes. Seriously—it’s awesome. The combination of sweet potatoes and coconut milk actually changed my feelings toward coconut many years ago. When I was young, coconut was THE grossest. My parents have been using Skin Trip lotion since I was little, and I found the scent revolting. I went to birthday parties fearing that the cake would come out covered in horrible shredded coconut, completely ruining my reason for coming to the party in the first place! 

But when I started getting into cooking after college, I happened upon a recipe for sweet potatoes, carrots, and green beans simmered in coconut milk. For some reason, it intrigued me. I made it, and wow—I could not believe how amazing sweet potatoes and coconut milk tasted together. 

Add a spicy kick, and it really doesn’t get much better. My boyfriend even declared this to be his favorite of all the ravioli I’ve ever made (and I’ve made a lot)! To read more and view this delicious recipe visit Reclaiming Provincial by clicking on link: www.petitekitchenesse.com/
