Can of ‘lite’ coconut milk
Ground corn (polenta)
Peel and cube the pumpkin and place in a saucepan.
Cover with coconut milk.
Put lid on and cook gently until the pumpkin is very soft.
Mash with potato masher.
Add enough ground corn (polenta) to thicken the mixture to the texture of mashed potato.
Cook slightly, stirring so it does not stick.
Add salt to taste
It is a staple food but it makes a good accompaniment to fish or meat with rice, vegetables or salad.
