Ingredients

Casserole
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons dairy-free yogurt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Topping

Instructions

  1. Begin by roasting 2 medium sweet potatoes. To do this, preheat your oven to 375F and place the sweet potatoes in the oven. Simple as that. Leave to cook for about 30-40 minutes, until potatoes are tender. To test, you can poke with a fork or butter knife. Once complete, remove from the oven and allow to cool for a couple of minutes.
  2. Reset oven to 350F and lightly oil a 4-cup casserole dish. Set aside.
  3. Remove the skin from the sweet potatoes.
  4. Keep the skin for later, it makes a fabulous snack with a sprinkle of sea salt. Trust me, it’s delicious!
  5. Place the peeled sweet potatoes in a medium sized bowl, add the remaining casserole ingredients and mash with a potato masher until fully incorporated.
  6. Spoon mixture into the prepared casserole dish and flatten with the end of a spoon. Set aside.
  7. Combine topping mixture in a small bowl.
  8. Stir to combine, then drop over top of the sweet potato mix.
  9. Place in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes until the top is golden.
  10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 10-15 minutes before consuming.
