Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole With Marshmallows
This sweet potato casserole truly belongs on the dessert table, but it looks so pretty with the meal spread, as well. No matter where or when you decide to serve it, everyone will swarm towards this classic holiday dish. And you’ll be happy to make it for them every year because the recipe is so easy! You all know I don’t fear a complicated recipe, but when it comes to the holidays and large meals, I prefer to keep each dish simple and classic. When you’re making ten dishes at once, your mind is going in enough directions! No need for the fifteen-step-casserole amidst all that! And on a holiday meal side note, I think I always forget to make something. This year it was the biscuits. Or I’ll put something in the refrigerator to chill, and then after everyone has eaten I’ll be putting things away and see it still sitting in there untouched and be like, “Freaking dang it gosh darn it all!!” Is that just me? It’s practically a holiday tradition. Although, I think I’ll take my tradition of forgetting a dish over my mom’s tradition of always setting the rolls on fire… Less smelly.
Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole
- 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 2 tablespoons vegan butter
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon nondairy milk
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- Dash sea salt
- 1 10 oz. bag Dandies, or other vegan marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil or spray a 1.5 quart baking dish and set aside. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add sweet potatoes. Boil until very tender, about 12-15 minutes. Drain the sweet potatoes. In a large bowl with a hand held mixer or in a stand mixer, whip together cooked sweet potatoes, butter, brown sugar, nondairy milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt until smooth. (Add more nondairy milk if needed.) Transfer the whipped sweet potatoes to your prepared baking dish and smooth out into an even layer. Top with a single layer of vegan marshmallows. Bake for 25 minutes or until marshmallows are puffed up and golden brown. Don’t worry if your marshmallows start to puff up quite a bit; they will come back down when removed from the oven!
Do you have any unintentional holiday traditions, like forgetting a dish or always burning something?
