Combine the almond milk, curry powder and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the mixture is reduced by a third, about 5 minutes. Strain in a fine mesh strainer and discard ginger. Pour any accumulated juices from the sweet potato foil wrappers into a food processor. Cut sweet potatoes in half and scoop out flesh into your food processor. Add the almond milk mixture, pinch of salt and puree until smooth.
