How to Make Vegan Candied Sweet Potatoes

  1. Peel and chop sweet potatoes. You want them to be similar in size so that they cook at the same speed.
  2. Put a steamer basket in a large pot, and fill water until it almost touches the basket. Place chopped sweet potatoes into the basket. Turn heat to medium and cover with a lid. Cook for 20 minutes.
  3. While the sweet potatoes are steaming, you can make the candy mixture. In a medium bowl melt 1.5 tbsp Vegan butter. Then stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/3 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp vanilla.
  4. When potatoes are done (test with fork to make sure they’re soft), move them from the steamer basket into a serving bowl. Drizzle candied topping over the sweet potatoes and gently stir it around.
