  • Steamer Basket



  • Peel and chop sweet potatoes. You want them to be similar in size so that they cook at the same speed.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
