Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet potatoes are a gift. The flu is not. I had the flu for seven days, which is why I have not posted any recipes lately. Fortunately, the virus left me in time for Thanksgiving and in time to make this delicious sweet potato casserole. It’s also dairy free!

This recipe for sweet potato casserole is really easy and your guests will never know that it’s made without butter or milk. It uses coconut oil and coconut milk as substitutes.

The trick to getting really good sweet potatoes is to cook them long enough. I used three medium sweet potatoes and they cooked for about 60 minutes. You will know the sweet potatoes are ready when the sugars start leaking out of them and the skin starts getting loose on them. I think it’s best to cook them a bit too long rather than a bit too short.

To make the sweet potato mixture, just bake the sweet potatoes for about 60 minutes at 400 degrees. Remove them from the oven and carefully peel off the skin. Mix these in with coconut oil, full fat coconut milk, vanilla extract, egg, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Now you are ready to prepare the pecan topping. Take about 1.5 cups of pecans and chop or crush them until they are quite small. Mix these together with shredded coconut, coconut oil, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt. Sprinkle the pecan topping evenly over the sweet potatoes and pop it into the oven for about 35 minutes.

  9. I am the business owner of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently trying to develop my wholesale side of company. I am hoping someone at targetdomain share some guidance 🙂 I considered that the most ideal way to accomplish this would be to talk to vape stores and cbd retailers. I was really hoping if anybody at all could suggest a reliable website where I can get Vape Shop Business Sales Leads I am currently taking a look at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the best choice and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
