Recipe: Low Carb Sweet Potato Casserole

In today’s Low Carb Thanksgiving substitute, we’ll be making a low carb version of the ever so sweet and popular Sweet Potato Casserole. We’ll use a mash up (literally! haha!) of two OTHER low carb vegetables to mimic this orange treat to make a low carb sweet potato casserole.

Here is a post on how to properly murder and break down your pumpkin for recipes such as this one.

I steam my cauliflower first until tender, then puree it in the food processor.

Low Carb Sweet Potato Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups pureed pumpkin
  • 2 cups pureed cauliflower
  • 3 tablespoons maple extract
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt + add more based on preference
  • 5-6 drops of vanilla liquid stevia
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds

Directions: Preheat oven to 350

  1. Mix your pumpkin and cauliflower puree together
  2. Mix in butter, maple extract, salt and stevia
  3. Taste – do you want it saltier/sweeter/maple-y-er? Add more of the salt/stevia/extract
  4. Once you reach your desired taste level, transfer mash into a baking dish and sprinkle the pumpkin seeds and almonds over evenly
  5. Bake for 10 minutes
  6. Transfer to broiler up to four more minutes to brown the almonds (keep a close eye to prevent burning – depends on your broiler!)
