My dessert, your dessert, everyone’s dessert!

Hi all,

I hope you are well!  Today we have a recipe that could be considered dessert.  We start with a list of ingredients (see below):IMG_1203

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Apples
  • 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.
