Sweet Potato Soirée
I had a Sunday Soiree to attend over the weekend, where the theme was the potato! I wanted to think a bit outside the box and whip up something special and a tad bit unique on the potato spectrum.
I love sweet potato pie, especially when it’s drenched with more than a dollop of whipped cream, so that’s the recipe I’ll share with you here.

1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 unbaked pie crust

*I have a pumpkin spice powder I substituted for the separate cloves and nutmeg as it has those plus cinnamon included in the blend.
Then, throw them in a blender until a purée has been thickly and beautifully reached. Then pour that mix into an un-cooked vegan pie crust and bake!
