2. Ingredients for Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Crumble
- 4 lb. sweet potatoes (6 large)
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup vegan buttery spread (melted, for potatoes)
- 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
- 1 scant tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp. salt (for potatoes)
- 1/8 tsp. black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups pecans (roughly chopped)
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp. salt (for topping)
- 1/2 cup vegan buttery spread (melted, for topping)
Poke holes all over the sweet potatoes with a fork and place them on a large microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high until potatoes are very tender when pierced with a fork, 15-20 minutes. Microwave in batches if necessary. Carefully remove plate from the microwave and allow sweet potatoes to rest until cool enough to handle, about 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
Scoop the sweet potato flesh from the skins and place in a large bowl. Discard the skins. Add the maple syrup, buttery spread, coconut milk, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and pepper. Mash the mixture with a potato masher or mixer until smooth and creamy.
Transfer the sweet potato mixture to the prepared baking dish and smooth into an even layer.
Place the pecans, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing bowl and stir with a fork to combine. Drizzle the melted buttery spread into the bowl, and mix until large crumbs form.
Sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly over sweet potatoes.
Bake the casserole on middle rack of oven until the crumble is golden brown and dish is gently bubbling at the edges, 30-35 minutes.
Check to see that casserole is done. Remove from oven or add time as needed.
Allow casserole to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
