Sweet Potato Gems (gluten free, vegan, no added sugar)

Sweet Potato Gems

This sweet potato casserole is hued in festive oranges and reds. In a break from tradition, no marshmallows distract from the delicate and sweet spiciness. So simple, yet so pretty and flavourful, Sweet Potato Gems would make a cheery addition to any meal.

3 cups grated sweet potatoes (one large)
1 cup grated beets (one large or four small. Beets vary greatly.)
1 cup water
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp salt of your choice

Preheat the oven to 375F Grease a lidded casserole dish with coconut oil or a light spray of olive oil.

Layer the grated sweet potatoes and beets. (Do not mix them.) Start with a bottom layer, two inches thick, of sweet potatoes. Top with a thin layer of beets, then the rest of the sweet potatoes and rest of the beets.

Stir the spices and salt into the water, and pour evenly over the sweet potato and beet layers.

Bake for about an hour with the lid on.

  2. Sweet potatoes and beets together?! What an idea - Love it! I love both veggies!

    I saw this on Allergy Free Weds - if you're interested, I also shared my recipes on there: my banana bread muffins and mocha banana protein soft serve. Have a great evening :)
