Sweet potato & coconut milk gratin

Holy cow, has it been almost a year since I've posted last?! Well, I'm back and I'm going to slide this post in just before I hit the 1-year-without-posting mark. I've even brought with me a little design refresh. I'm still tweaking the look and layout but I'm going for a cleaner design to the blog. Hope you like it.​

This is actually the second time I've made sweet potato and coconut milk gratin. It's pretty simple. Not counting salt & pepper, it's just two ingredients – sweet potatoes and coconut milk. Both ingredients have a lot to offer in the flavor department so even though it's short on ingredients, it brings a lot of flavor. I served this with marinated flat iron steak and sautéed kale. ​

I was flipping through my copy of the July 2010 issue of Food and Wine Magazine I had just received the other day and was inspired by this little snippet about how Laurent Gras of L20 uses a rice cooker to make this Ginger Chicken and Rice dish. I love using a rice cooker to make rice. As long as you follow the rice cooker's rice-to-water ratios, it comes out perfect every time. My version is inspired from his recipe.
