Mashing baked purple sweet potatoes

Tips when making this dish:

  • Bake your purple sweet potato until it is soft.
    I cleaned and covered the purple sweet potatoes I used in this recipe with aluminum foil. Then, I baked them at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 50 minutes to an hour. The size of the purple sweet potato will determine how long it needs to be baked. When the time is up, carefully remove the foil-covered purple sweet potato and squeeze it to see if it gives. If it is soft, then it is done. If not, bake it for about 15 more minutes or so.
  • The baked purple sweet potato does not need to be mashed very well.
    By this I mean, don’t spend too much time making sure the purple sweet potato is completely mashed and creamy. This will be mixed with other ingredients and baked again so everything will be nice and soft then.
  • Add the topping mid-bake.
    This helps the topping not get too crispy or burned. And, it helps the topping stay on the top.
Getting ready to bake purple sweet potato souffle.

A little while before I first posted this recipe, I managed to go off refined sugar for a couple of months around Halloween. And, I even shocked myself when I didn’t feel the need to ransack store shelves the day after for 50% off Halloween Candy! But, I feel like I jumped into an alternate universe on my being-refined-sugar-free-journey, as now my taste buds seem to think that sweet potato trumps chocolate!

So, I made a refined sugar-free purple sweet potato soufflé!

By the way, I recently harvested 21 purple sweet potatoes from my garden, so I have been using them in everything from roasted purple sweet potatoes to purple sweet potato porridge.

Variations and Substitutions…

  • If you do not have any purple sweet potatoes, you can use regular orange sweet potatoes in this recipe too. In fact, There has been many a time when I have used the latter instead.
  • While I used full-fat coconut milk for a creamy texture, you can use your favorite milk choice instead.
  • I used vegan butter in this recipe, but feel free to use whatever butter you have on hand.
  • I was trying to keep this dish refined sugar-free for the most part and used monkfruit sweeterner in it. I used Classic monkfruit sweetener in the souffle part. And I used golden monkfruit sweetener (which I have found works like brown sugar) in the topping.
  • Not a fan of pecans? No worries! You could use walnuts instead of pecans.
  • Cranberries add a nice tartness to this dish. However, you can leave them out or substitute them with fresh cranberries too.

I would not substitute the spices unless you would like to add a bit of almond extract to this as well.

I'm really glad you linked this post, Shashi! We actually just ended up with a bag of sweet potatoes by accident - I bought the wrong thing at the store. Oops. Now I have a bag of sweet potatoes. We were thinking of just roasting them, but I like the sound of this souffle. With the cranberry addition, it makes it very holiday appropriate!!
