You can use a little more chili paste than the recipe calls for, but if your guests aren't wild for spicy foods, keep it under control. You can add a little cinnamon, crème fraiche, and maple syrup if you like. this minimalist adaptation is dynamite, though. Once you've tasted it, all other sweet potato dishes will seem wimpy. You can make this dish a day ahead, then bake it on the day you serve it. It's always wonderful with ham and roast pork. Serves8 to 10 source unknown
