This is a recipe for a delicious sweet potato casserole that is perfect to serve alongside any of your holiday meals! Sweet potatoes are very complimentary to most savory meals and they can easily be paired up with any choice of meat or fish. The sweetness of the following Paleo side dish blends perfectly with more savory options and brings a festive side to your holiday meals. A variation of the mashed sweet potatoes with flavors from cinnamon and walnuts is often served on Thanksgiving, but there is no reason not to enjoy it around the new year feasts.
The idea of mashing regular white potatoes and serving them the traditional way is just so boring! At the same time, I find that potatoes can be such a staple dish, especially when serving a huge meal, so you don’t want to completely forget about them. This casserole is certainly a creative alternative and it’s great to have a sweeter dish on the table that is not dessert. The vanilla, cocoa powder and toasted walnuts combined together is absolutely delicious! So much so that I am chowing down on it as I write this, because I just can’t get enough! Try it for yourself.
This dish is not only delicious, but is also very nutritious. Sweet potatoes are a great source of healthy carbohydrates, beta carotene, vitamin C, manganese and potassium. They are higher in fructose than regular white potatoes, but are still mostly starchy and digested to glucose, which is a better source of energy compared to sources of carbohydrates higher in fructose such as most fruits. Combined with the fat from the coconut milk, this dish will fill you up and leave you very satisfied.
