Roasted Yam Purée with Coconut Milk

This dish is creamy orange bliss. Often confused with sweet potatoes, yams contain more natural sugar and have a higher moisture content. When buying yams, select smaller ones (they’re sweeter) and ones that are unwrinkled with few blemishes. If you can’t find yams, you can substitute sweet potatoes.
