Today at work we are having International Thanksgiving! Everyone on the team is supposed to bring a dish from their culture to share. Since N and I are still going strong with Whole30 (day 25!) I decided to make a paleo dish for the Thanksgiving celebration. I brainstormed for quite awhile before I decided to make sweet potato casserole – ultimately I figured it would be good to bring something that didn’t need too many modifications to make it paleo. I googled a couple different recipes and used this recipe with some minor modifications to make it Whole30 approved (I left out the vanilla extract and used Penzeys Apple Pie Spice instead of cinnamon). I also didn’t really measure any of the ingredients – I just tasted as I went to see if I used enough of the spices or needed more. One last modification I made to the recipe was that I added some of the apple pie spices and cocoa powder directly into the sweet potatoes to sweet them up a little.
Overall it was a pretty good paleo version of sweet potato casserole. Not gonna lie, I still prefer my sweet potatoes with lots of melted marshmallows on top!
