I hope you are well! Today we have a recipe that could be considered dessert. We start with a list of ingredients (see below):
- Sweet potatoes
- Organic plant-based milk (preferably unsweetened)
- Seeds and nuts to preferred taste (I used pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and walnuts – pecans would be a great substitute/addition)
- Cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg
Play with the recipe until you find your favorite mix.
Peel the sweet potatoes
Cut into smaller pieces and throw into a pot with water for boiling
While the sweet potatoes are boiling, cut up your apples
Once the sweet potatoes are tender, remove the water and add some plant-milk (it will not take much – but add to taste). Mash together and place into a baking pan.
Now that the sweet potatoes are placed in the baking pan you may add all your preferred spices, herbs and sliced apples. Don’t be shy with the spices. I recommend mixing it all once you have added what you desire.
Finally we may add our preferred nuts and seeds. You could eat it this way of course but I prefer to bake it to soften up the apples (the smell is quite pleasant and welcoming as well). I only bake it at 350F for 20-25 minutes but you may want a different texture/crispness. One great thing about this recipe is how flexible it can be; use canned pumpkin instead of sweet potatoes or add some mashed bananas (cooking times may differ for substitutes). Have fun and make it yours, this is merely a template.
