I can’t think of a more anticipated and thoroughly enjoyed meal than Thanksgiving dinner. We missed our kids this year, but the food didn’t suffer. And, the potatoes for this Chunky Sweet Potato Casserole came straight out of our garden in the morning!
There are also purple sweet potatoes waiting to be harvested. I purchased the slips for these special Okinawan purple potatoes since that’s about the only way I know of to find them.
I like the idea of a chunky sweet potato casserole because at Thanksgiving you already usually have mashed potatoes. These won't affect your waistline as they don't have added brown sugar or marshmallows which you see in some recipes.
They're instead baked with walnuts and pistachios and cranberry and pomegranate juice for sweetness and nutritional goodness.
Your holiday menu can be healthy and filling:
- Vegan Green Bean Casserole
- Vegan Creamed Spinach
- Sauteed Greens
- Butternut Squash, Brussels Sprouts, Apple Stuffing
- Cranberry Apple Sauce
