Sweet Potato and Apricot Casserole

Sweet potatoes, apricots, cinnamon and nutmeg make this family favorite (and vegan friendly) dish tastes like pumpkin pie filling.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into small cubes. Add to pot of boiled water and cook until tender.
  2. Strain potatoes and return to pot. Strain apricots (reserving syrup) and add apricots to potatoes in pot. Mix with an electric mixer, slowly mixing in all of the apricot syrup and sprinkle in the corn starch.
  3. Once ingredients are fully mixed, add cinnamon and nutmeg, to pot and continue to puree. Mixture should resemble baby food.
  4. Move potato mixture to an oven safe casserole dish and bake at 350 °F (175 °C) for 45 minutes, or until top is a golden color and mixture has thickened.

This is my favourite dish to make for pot luck dinners. Everyone seems to love it, and it tastes like a dessert--despite the fact that it's so healthy!

I haven't tried this yet, so I will reevaluate once I've had the finished product. I am doing it a little differently though, but this recipe is the inspiration. Instead of boiling the sweet potatoes, I've steamed them in the microwave. I didn't have canned apricots, so I am using canned peaches. Lastly, instead of pureeing the casserole I am baking it as chunks. I am hoping it will make nicely caramelized, tender bits of spud and fruit. :)
