This savory sweet potato casserole will delight your taste buds and bring something a little bit different to your holiday table! Made with a layer of silky roasted sweet potato puree, a layer of caramelized onions, and finally topped with crispy herbed walnut “breadcrumbs”, it’s a unique and memorable dish.
I’ve never bothered trying to make a vegan version of classic sweet potato casserole (southern style) because if I can be quite frank, it’s never something that sounds appealing to eat. I like my desserts to be desserts and my savory food to be savory!
Therefore, I’ve come up with a marshmallow-free, umami sweet potato bake that has Thanksgiving-y comfort but isn’t sweet. Bonus: things won’t get weird if you get a little vegan gravy on it!
