I think sweet potato casseroles are always the high point of a holiday dinner. Once it was on the table it didn’t matter if you were celebrating with your favorite aunt or that weird one that always hugged you a little too hard.
Every family has a secret recipe for a sweet potato casserole, but not all of those are dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free and vegan. Even better, you can make this casserole ahead of time and keep it warm in the slow cooker until you’re ready to serve it.
This one is less sweet than the sweet potato casserole of my youth. It skips the caramel and marshmallow sometimes included. You could add vegan versions of both if you really want to.
Of course, no one else needs to know how easy it was to make!
