My good friend Sara sent me a delicious sweet potato pie recipe years ago, and this recipe is inspired from there.


Main ingredients

  • 3 cups sweet potato, peeled and cut into chunks

  • 1/4 cup coconut cream or Gefen Soy Milk

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • salt

  • pepper

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil

  • 1/2 red onion, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 and 1/2 ounces gourmet salami, chopped into small pieces

  • 2 Medjool dates, pitted and cut into small pieces

  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans

  • 3 tablespoons Gefen Maple Syrup, divided

  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped


Prepare the Sweet Potato Pie


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.


Boil sweet potato in water until a fork goes through easily. Drain, transfer to a bowl and mash. Mix in coconut cream, egg, salt and pepper. Transfer to a pie dish to bake.


While sweet potato is cooking, start sautéing onion in oil at medium heat – onions should slowly turn translucent and then start caramelizing. Once golden brown, add in cinnamon and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add in salami, dates, pecans, two tablespoons maple syrup and rosemary. Cook for another minute, until well incorporated.


Spread pecan-salami mixture over sweet potato and drizzle on remaining tablespoon maple syrup.


Bake for about 25–30 minutes (check to make sure it doesn’t burn).

Cook time missing How long do I bake the sweet potato part before adding the salami mixture?

The potatoes are already cooked and do not have to be baked separately first. You add the topping and bake it all together. Sweet potatoes cook and bake quite fast and it is not necessary to bake in advance.

You don’t bake the sweet potato part before adding the topping. Prepare the sweet potato in a dish and once the topping is added you will bake it for 25-30 min- just make sure the topping doesn’t get burnt.

Really really good. Can’t say I followed the proportions exactly..I used empire turkey bacon (fried first) instead of salami and a smaller amount of dried rosemary, almond milk instead of soy, but it was really yum and a nice change ..the rosemary wasn’t overpowering but has a subtle hint that took this to the next level.
