Laila shares her recipe for a side dish that will sweeten up a savory meal.


Serves: 8 to 10
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients for Filling
3 to 4 large sweet potatoes
½ cup light coconut milk
½ cup maple syrup
¼ cup coconut oil, in liquid form
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
2 eggs

Ingredients for Topping
1½ cups chopped pecans
1½ cups almond flour
½ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup of butter
½ teaspoon sea salt


Steps

  1. Peel and chop the sweet potatoes into large 2" chunks. Place chunks in a large saucepan, and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer
  2. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes until tender
  3. Peel and chop the sweet potatoes, place in a large pot and cover with water
  4. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium and simmer until fork-tender, about 15 to 20 minutes
  5. Preheat oven to 350
  6. In a bowl, combine the pecans, brown sugar, almond flour, vanilla and salt. Using a fork, cut in the butter. Using your hands or a fork, toss ingredients until the mixture has a sandy texture with pea-sized chunks. Set aside
  7. Drain the sweet potatoes well. Transfer to a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. (You may have to do this in batches.) Transfer to a large mixing bowl
  8. Add the coconut milk, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt to the bowl. Whip to combine well. Add the egg and continue to whip until well blended
  9. Grease a quart-sized casserole dish. Pour the sweet potato mixture into the dish. Top with the pecan mixture. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes uncovered, until the casserole is bubbling and the topping is golden brown
