Savory sweet potato casserole is a delicious alternative to the traditional dessert-style sweet potato side dish. It features chanterelle mushrooms, crunchy walnuts and nutritional yeast for a bit of "cheesy" flavor. No gluten or grains either.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 casserole dish with a little butter or ghee and set aside.
In a large pan over medium heat, melt 2 Tbsp of the butter or ghee. Once melted, add the onion and sauté 1-2 minutes. Then, add the chanterelles and garlic. Season with a little sea salt and black pepper. Continue to cook until mushrooms are softened. Remove from heat and set aside.
Add the remaining 1 Tbsp butter or ghee to the pot with the cooked sweet potatoes and mash. Then, add the nutritional yeast, onion granules or powder, cayenne, nutmeg, Dijon, vegetable broth, sea salt, and black pepper. Stir well. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Lastly, add the cooled mushroom mixture and eggs, and stir.
