Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet Potato Casserole

A new take on an old classic, this vegan casserole subs out the marshmallow topping and adds a nutty, crunchy finish perfect for this year’s Friendsgiving gathering.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with foil and brush an 8 x 11-inch baking dish, or similar, with olive oil. Use a fork to poke a few holes into the sweet potatoes. Place on the baking sheet and roast until very tender, about 60 minutes.
  2. Make the crumble topping: Place in a food processor the oats, pecans, walnuts, garlic, maple syrup, olive oil, thyme, rosemary and salt, and pulse until just combined. Remove and set aside.
  3. Scoop the cooked sweet potato flesh out of the skins and place in a food processor. Add the olive oil, almond milk, ginger, salt, and several grinds of pepper and process to combine. Spread the mixture into the baking dish.
  4. Sprinkle with the crumble topping, additional nuts and sage as desired. Drizzle with olive oil and bake 20 minutes or until the topping is browned and crisp.
