Change up your holiday side dishes with these Vegan Maple Thyme Mashed Sweet Potatoes! Totally plant-based and GF, and require just a handful of simple ingredients.
Serves: 6
  • 3 large sweet potatoes
  • 1½ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk {I used cashew}
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup, to taste
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 1-2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter
  1. First, prepare the sweet potatoes by washing and peeling them.
  2. Cut them into medium-sized cubes and place in a large pot.
  3. Pour the milk over the sweet potato pieces and add a pinch of salt.
  4. Bring the milk to a boil, then lower to a simmer, cover the pot, and allow the sweet potatoes to cook over medium-low heat until soft and falling apart. This should take 30-45 minutes.
  5. When the sweet potatoes are completely soft and mushy, use a potato masher to smooth them out, and season with the maple syrup, thyme, vegan butter, and any additional salt.
  6. Serve immediately!
