Need a last minute Thanksgiving or Thanksgivvukah dish? Try this sweet potato recipe. It has three ingredients (plus salt if you wish). Its other virtue is that it is barely sweetened, because I think sweet potatoes are so naturally sugary they don’t need much more.
You can make this ahead and reheat it. Even put marshmallows on top (a few minutes before serving, and after the casserole is already hot).
I use Sarabeth’s Orange-Apricot Marmalade. But you can use either plain orange marmalade or apricot jam (or mix the two).
Three Ingredient Sweet Potato Casserole
4 medium sweet potatoes
3 tablespoons orange-apricot marmalade
2 tablespoons Earth Balance Buttery Spread, margarine or butter
salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Scrub the sweet potatoes, prick them with the tip of a sharp knife and roast them for about one hour or until tender. When cool enough to handle, scoop the flesh into a bowl (discard the skin or eat separately). Add the marmalade and Earth Balance and mash until smooth. Season to taste with salt. Makes 4-6 servings
