Delightfully spiced and mashed Candied Sweet Potatoes topped with sweet and buttery pecan streusel is the perfect holiday snack or side dish. Bring your sweet potato game to the next level with this easy vegan holiday recipe that everyone will love!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease an 8x8 casserole dish.
In a medium pot, submerge the sweet potatoes in water and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are softened, about 12 to 15 minutes.
Drain the water using a colander and place the potatoes back into the pot. Using a potato masher, mash the potatoes. Pour in the milk, vanilla, ¼ cup of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and powdered ginger, and mix together until thoroughly combined. Transfer to the 8x8 dish and spread until it’s evenly leveled.
In a mixing bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, vegan butter, brown sugar, and pecans, until thoroughly mixed. Evenly spread the mixture onto the prepared sweet potatoes and bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and enjoy!
To save time, prevent food waste, and maximize nutrition, I don’t peel the sweet potatoes.
