Day#18 of the 30-Day Vegan Journey

Happy Thursday. I pray neither of you celebrated today’s throwback theme by indulging in a bucket of chicken or a milk shake. Fight! You’re almost there.

Well, while perusing another cool vegan site today, I found one more great recipe I’d like to share with you all.

Author: Baylie Martin
Yields: 2 servings
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1.5 cups almond milk
  • 3/4 cup quinoa flour
  • 1/4 cup ground almond meal
  • 4 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Peel sweet potato and cut into cubes.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 quarts of water to a boil.
  3. Boil sweet potato cubes for 20 minutes, or until soft. (A fork should pierce the skin easily when cooked.)
  4. Remove from heat and strain.
  5. Place strained sweet potato cubes in a small mixing bowl and mash with a fork until smooth and creamy.
  6. In a large mixing bowl, pour together milk, cinnamon, maple syrup, and salt. Whisk until well combined.
  7. Add the mashed sweet potato to the milk mixture. Whisk together.
  8. Now add your quinoa flour and almond meal, slowly, whisking together along the way to avoid clumps.
  9. Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil over medium heat in a small skillet.
  10. Pour desired amount of sweet potato mixture into skillet and cook covered over medium heat for 15 minutes, flipping with a flat spatula as necessary. It may start out looking like a pancake, but once you begin to flip it, the mixture will thicken up and become more like porridge.
  11. When finished, remove from heat and transfer to a bowl or dinner skillet.
  12. Serve with an additional drizzle of maple syrup and sliced strawberries.

My mouth waters just reading the recipe. I can hardly wait to try this. The boys will dive right into a bowl of this. Yum!
