Mock Sweet Potato Pie (GF)
MOCK SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE
I really like this. I’m not sure how closely it mimics sweet potato casserole, but my husband said this is a keeper!
2 tbsp melted butter (30 mL)
Liquid sucralose to equal 1 cup (250 mL)
2 tbsp powdered erythritol (30 mL)
1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)
2 cups any cooked yellow squash (500 mL)
(not spaghetti squash though)
1 cup canned pumpkin (250 mL)
1/2 cup heavy cream (125 mL)
1/2 tsp glucomannan powder, OR xanthan gum (2 mL)
Ground nutmeg sprinkle
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). In food processor, process eggs, butter, liquid sucralose, OR SPLENDA® Granular, erythritol, salt and vanilla extract. Add squash, pumpkin, heavy cream and glucomannan powder, OR xanthan gum; process until smooth. Pour into 9-inch glass pie dish. Sprinkle with ground nutmeg. Bake about 40 minutes or until set.
Helpful Hints: Whenever I want to reduce the sodium in a dish, I use half regular salt and half No Salt®. The latter does not taste great on its own, but mixed with regular salt, it tastes great in most dishes and even baking.
