Vegan and Gluten Free Sweet Potato Casserole

Who is ready for Thanksgiving?! Give me all the sweet potato dishes on Turkey Day! I love twice baked sweet potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, scalloped sweet potatoes, and of course this sweet potato casserole! This sweet potato casserole is vegan, gluten free, and paleo. But you’d never know it! The perfect way to meet any dietary needs while still enjoying traditional Thanksgiving foods 🙂

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dish?! And if you could only pick one- would you pick the main meal or dessert? For me- I’m always picking dessert! But… does this casserole count as dessert… Haha.

Recipe Tips:

This casserole is made in a small casserole dish so it isn’t a huge portion. So if you have a big group for Thanksgiving or want leftovers, I’d double this recipe! I’d say this is 8 portions. So just use that to decide what size you need!

For the sweet potato mixture, you want to make sure it’s mixed together well! You can use a hand mixer, an immersion blender, or a stand mixer. Honestly you can even throw it in the blender!

For the topping, you’ll chop it up in the food processor. For texture purposes, you can add some whole pecans on top of the crust. You don’t have to but I think it has a nice crunch!
