Vegan Mofo #22: Individual Sweet Potato Casserole

Ready for Thanksgiving and sweet potato casserole, but that's too far away and much too time consuming?

Try my individual sweet potato casserole! It's easy to make, all you need is a microwave and a spoon. It's quick, too!

Individual Sweet Potato Casserole
1 sweet potato, cooked (microwave for 8 minutes)
1 T. unsweetened applesauce
1 t. crushed almonds
1 t. unsweetened coconut
A dash of cinnamon

1. Slice sweet potato down the middle.
2. Mix in apple sauce and cinnamon.
3. Sprinkle almonds and coconut on top.
4. Enjoy!

It's pretty good, and I like that there is no actual sugar in this recipe. You still get the sweetness but without the sugar! :) Feel free to sprinkle on some Dandie's vegan marshies if you want and then microwave again before eating! (Just make sure you do this BEFORE adding the coconut and almonds!)

What's your favorite Thanksgiving food?
Much love,


  1. What a great idea for Thanksgiving. Every year I go to my family's for Thanksgiving and have to bring all my own food. This will be so much better than baking an entire sweet potato dish just for myself. :)

  2. Sweet and simple, that's what I like in a recipe. I've never tried coconut with sweet poatoes. Maybe I've been missing out?

    I usually buy a vegan pumpkin pie from Whole Foods for Thanksgiving 'cause I'm too lazy to bake a pie from scratch.

  3. Oooh. This is a must make. Thanx for posting.

  4. This is a great idea, and I could go for a potato right now (just so delicious).

  5. I'm glad you all enjoy this recipe!

  6. This looks delicious! Sweet potatoes are definitely my favorite Thanksgiving food!
