I am so excited about this Vegan Sweet Potato with Marshmallow recipe. I mean, how can you go wrong with sweet potatoes topped with Marshmallows? This is a recipe that makes me jump out of bed in the morning. It is a Holiday side dish in our house, tasting more like a dessert than a potato dish, but oh so wonderful.
Thanksgiving was literally just a few days ago, and although we have now officially entered the Christmas season, I am still reminiscing over how wonderful Thanksgiving was. We made this sweet potato dish at our house for Thanksgiving, and I can say that I had an embarrassing amount of servings.
The flavors POP when you bite into this warm sweet potato dish. It has a hint of orange, a touch of cinnamon, a little ginger, and is finished off with toasted marshmallows. Wow! This dish is a favorite of mine if you haven’t gathered that all ready. I love sweet potatoes any day of the week, but this Holiday version made with marshmallows takes the cake. I will sing its praises from my kitchen, especially around the Holidays.
I use Vegan Marshmallows, which taste fantastic. You may have thought marshmallows were vegan, but that is not the case. So read the labels. Click the link below to see the brand that I buy on Amazon. I believe Whole Foods also carry them.
Christmas is only 21 days away (not including today). Time runs by so fast, and I am sure you are busy planning and preparing for the Christmas season. You can make this dish ahead of time, which makes it a great side dish for the Holiday meal. Add the marshmallows on right before you bake it, and it will have that beautiful golden look that makes it such a festive dish.
You can even add some pecans to the mix for those of you that enjoy a little extra crunch.
I hope you are having a wonderful Holiday season and I hope you enjoy this Vegan Sweet Potato with Marshmallow recipe as much as I do. I love it.Print
