Sweet Potato-Coconut Puree

Recipe by  

"Patricia Yeo, 42, a Chinese American, was born in the United States but grew up in England without a Thanksgiving tradition. Today, as the executive chef of AZ and Pazo in New York City, she loves to cook Thanksgiving dinner because of the creativity that can be put into side dishes. 'I wanted to do a sweet potato puree, but instead of using cream I decided to use coconut milk. Coconut's a big thing in Southeast Asian cooking. This dish is great because you simply cannot screw it up.'"
