Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

November 8, 2017

If candied yams are a must-have on your Thanksgiving table, then we’ve got the perfect recipe. It sticks to tradition with fluffy, flavorful spuds, but transforms them into a vegan-friendly option by skipping cream in favor of nutty almond butter. (Trust us, it totally works.) Top the dish with non-GMO, vegan marshmallows, and save the extras for hot chocolate after the dishes are done.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and grease an 8- x 8-inch baking dish with coconut spray.

Prick potatoes all over with a fork and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Roast for 50 to 60 minutes, until tender. Once cool enough to handle, cut lengthwise and scoop out flesh into a large bowl. Whip with a hand mixer until smooth.

To the potatoes, add maple syrup, almond butter, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cayenne, and vanilla; whip until smooth. Stir in ¼ cup pecans, then spoon into baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup pecans and top with marshmallows. Lower heat to 350 degrees F and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until marshmallows are golden. Just remember to keep an eye on the marshmallows so they don’t burn.
