Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes (Vegan)


Traditional sweet potato casserole has never been a necessity at our Thanksgiving table– as no one in my house is a fan of marshmallow topping– but it would seem wrong to omit these naturally sweet roots entirely.

Which is why I decided to try something new this year! These maple glazed sweet potatoes are bursting with fall flavor, without all of the milk, butter and refined sugar that comes with traditional sweet potato casserole. They’re also less labor intensive to prepare!

Featuring pure maple syrup, fresh ginger and a touch of coconut milk, this naturally sweetened glaze will leave no one at the table missing their marshmallows.
