  • 2-1/2 lbs Sweet Potatoes baked, skins removed (NOTE: you can also used canned sweet potatoes)
  • 1/2 c Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 c Vegan Margarine softened
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/4 c Chopped Pecans or Walnuts
  • Vegan Marshmallows


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Prepare a baking dish with cooking spray.  Set aside.
  • Wash and bake sweet potatoes whole.  Allow to cool enough to handle and remove skins.
  • Place the sweet potato into a large bowl and add the brown sugar and vegan margarine.  Using a potato masher, roughly mash until butter melts.
  • Fold in the salt and vanilla and spread into your prepared casserole dish.
  • Top with VEGAN marshmallows (I use Dandies brand).  You could use mini's, but since I had the traditional size, just cut them in half lengthwise.  Place over the top of your mashed potatoes.
  • Top with a sprinkling of chopped pecans and bake until the marshmallows are melted and golden. I rotated mine between the middle and top rack in the oven until I got the color I was seeking.  This should take about 20-30 minutes.
  • Allow to cool slightly before serving. Those marshmallows are HOT!
