Vegan and Gluten-Free Individual Marshmallow Topped Sweet Potatoes

Vegan and Gluten-Free Individual Marshmallow Topped Sweet PotatoesOne of the sweetest things at my families holiday table is not the pies my dad makes – it’s the sugary, marshmallowy sweet potatoes. My dad loves marshmallows, and the more he can pack on top a dish of sweet potatoes the better. At least that’s what he and my niece and nephews think anyway. I haven’t gotten to enjoy that goodness in years, but this year I decided to make a healthier version. I hope you get to enjoy these vegan and gluten-free Individual Marshmallow Topped Sweet Potatoes.

Yes it’s sweet potato week here on the blog. I figured since I wasn’t going home for Thanksgiving this year I would remake my favorite family recipes – using sweet potatoes. Yum! So one of the most sugary sides at holiday meals is the sweet potato casserole – and I’m only calling it a casserole because it has to be baked in a casserole dish. All those canned and candied sweet potatoes are sugar-bomb enough, but then all those glorious marshmallows overflowing the top and melting over the side of the dish? A little crispy on top? So. Sinful. And I unfortunately haven’t had any in a long time, so I wanted to recreate this but make it fun and a whole lot less sugary. Who wants one of these cute things?
