Sweet Potato Casserole

In the interest of saving time and my mothers sanity she decided to cater Thanksgiving dinner this year from Whole Foods. It is a new location so this was the first year they were doing it. Well turns out it was absolutely awful. Everything was dry and nothing really tasted that great. Very surprising for WF. Mom was devastated because this is the most anticipated meal of the year. I wish I would have offered to cook the whole thing but she wanted me to enjoy the day and spend time with the family so I only made one dish. Granted the food was terrible, everyone really enjoyed my dish! (Phew) Even though Thanksgiving is over I will definitely be making this dish this winter. I found this recipe on Skinny Taste, a great blog with so many awesome recipes.

Sweet Potato Casserole


  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes (about 5 medium), peeled
  • 1/2 cup of raisins
  • 1 tsp agave nectar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch allspice
  • 8 oz can unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained
  • 2 tbsp chopped pecans
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows


Cut sweet potatoes into large chunks; boil potatoes in a large pot covered with water until potatoes are soft if pierced with a fork. Drain and return to the pot.

Preheat oven to 400°.

Mash the sweet potatoes (I used my food processor) and add in raisins, agave, spices and pineapple. Lightly spray a pie dish, casserole dish or individual ramekins with oil, spoon in sweet potato mixture. Sprinkle with pecans and marshmallows. Bake for 15 minutes.

  1. I saw that WF was doing the catering for Thanksgiving, that’s too bad it didn’t turn out well! Maybe they just had so many orders they weren’t able to give the care they should have to all the food! Your casserole looks great though!

  2. Sad day that the Whole Foods catering was so disappointing. 😦 Your sweet potato casserole sure looks like a winner, though! 🙂
