My FAVORITE Thanksgiving side dish growing up was the “sweet potato soufflé”. When my mom would ask us what dishes we wanted in the Thanksgiving round-up, I always made sure that was included. So when I decided to re-create the dish, I took a look at the recipe…and saw that it calls for TWO CUPS of sugar (some recipes also call for a marshmallow topping)! No wonder I always liked it!
The thing is, you can recreate amazing traditional dishes without using all the fake ingredients and loads of sugar.
This delicious side is sure to be a hit at your Thanksgiving Day table (or for any other special occasion)! The maple syrup enhances the natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes, leaving you with a dish that tastes like a treat, but isn’t as sugar-laden as the original.
…And my favorite part? The slightly caramelized pecans…Mmm! :)
Yes, it is possible to have a Paleo Thanksgiving without totally changing the menu. Try this dish out, and let me know what you think!
