#glutenfree #vegan #mashed_potatoes #thanksgiving #recipes

Mashed potatoes were always present at Thanksgiving meals when I was growing up. While I still think they are delicious and make dairy-free versions of my own on occasion, and the boys really like them, we also happen to love sweet potatoes. For this Thanksgiving, I wanted to create something sweet and savory with the decadence only sweet potatoes can provide. My Sweet & Savory Mashed Sweet Potato Bake makes a perfect side dish for any feast!

Sweet & Savory Mashed Sweet Potato Bake {gluten free + vegan}

3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 Tbsp dairy-free butter (I use Earth Balance Soy Free)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp powdered onion
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper

Optional toppings:
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1-2 Tbsp brown sugar

Boil potatoes in a large saucepan over medium-high heat for 10 minutes or until fork tender. Drain into a colander.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8-inch casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.

In the saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and add garlic to sweat. Add parsley, powdered onion, salt, and pepper. Add potatoes and stir to combine. 

Using a hand mixer or handheld masher, mash potatoes while gradually pouring the coconut milk until potatoes reach the desired consistency.

Spread potatoes evenly in the casserole dish. Add desired toppings. Bake for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
