This is a great recipe for thanksgiving and holiday gatherings. Every guest, vegan or not, would surely rave about it. This soufflé has a unique blend of ingredients that are mostly healthy and nonfat; it does not resemble the traditional soufflé. Aside from the sweet potatoes, the silken tofu gave off a thick and creamy texture to the filling, especially after it was crushed in the blender/food processor. The best thing about tofu is it’s an excellent source of protein but it’s lower in calories and fat compared to ground beef and cheese. Tofutti, a soy-based, nondairy product, is often used as an alternative to ice cream and cheese. Tofutti was also used in this recipe to replace the usual dairy cheese and the end result was absolutely creamy and delicious. It is best to use a blender or a food processor to mash the ingredients together but you can always do the manual mixing if you don’t have one. This recipe is quick and simple, no need for complicated baking skills and it’s done in an hour or less. Now, here’s how to make this Vegan sweet potato soufflé.
Ingredients
  • Filling: 5 -6 medium sweet potatoes, baked, peeled and mashed
  • 1 package firm silken tofu (8 ounce or 224 g)
  • 1 container tofutti better-than-cream-cheese (8 ounce or 224 g)
  • 1 cup brown sugar (200 g)
  • 2 tablespoons soy margarine, melted (30 g)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (15 g)
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice (30 g)
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extractss (15 g)
  • Crumble topping: ¾ cup flour (113 g)
  • 1 cup brown sugar (200 g)
  • 6 tablespoons soy margarine (180 g)
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped (125 g)
Instructions
  1. Make the filling by mixing sweet potatoes and silken tofu in a blender or food processor. Blend until mixture is fine and smooth.
  2. Stir in the rest of the filling ingredients: tofutti, brown sugar, soy margarine, cornstarch, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract, and then blend until smooth.
  3. Pour the filling mixture into an 8x13 inches greased baking pan.
  4. In a separate bowl, prepare the toppings by combining flour and brown sugar.
  5. Cut in soy margarine with a pastry blender/fork until reaches a crumbly consistency. Mix in pecans to crumble.
  6. Sprinkle toppings over filling.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 35-45 minutes. If topping starts to get too dark, cover the baking pan with aluminum foil.
  8. Let it stand to room temperature for best consistency.
  9. Serve and enjoy!

Sweet Potatoes Recipe | Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Hey potato lovers. This recipe will be a bit different. I found a few sweet potato recipes on the net and this one I liked best. Why? Hmmm…. since I dedicated this blog to mashed potatoes recipes, maybe it has something to do with the fact that this is a mashed sweet potatoes recipe. lol. Or maybe not. OK, let’s start, what do we need?

Sweet Potatoes Recipe | Mashed Sweet Potatoes
 
Prep time:
Total time:
 
Ingredients
  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds (if you hate cumin you can skip it, I hate it)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper (freshly ground)
Instructions
  1. First turn on the oven and set it to 350 degrees F (180 C). Yes, with this mashed sweet potatoes recipe we will be using an oven and we will not be cooking potatoes in water.
  2. Now take the potatoes and pierce each one of them a few times with the fork. This will make little holes that will let the water evaporate and heat penetrate the potatoes. Tun your sweet potatoes on the oven rack and roast them. How do you know they are done? It's the same thing as with cooking them. Actually - potatoes are always done when they become soft and tender. You can test this by piercing them again with the fork or a knife. Generally it should take 45 minutes to 1 hour for potatoes to be done.
  3. Now take them from the oven and let them cool down for a while so you don't burn yourself when you peel them and cut them.
  4. minutes later...
  5. OK, now peel them and cut them into pieces. How big should the pieces be? It doesn't matter :) we will be smashing the sweet potatoes anyway. Put sweet potatoes into a bowl, add butter and smash them with a wire smasher, potato ricer...etc... You can leave some lumps and bumps if you like, or you can make them smooth.
  6. And to finish this of - add the rest of the ingredients. Add chili powder, ground cumin, ginger, maple syrup, salt and pepper. Use a big spoon or something to mix this into your mashed sweet potatoes and you are done.
