Health Benefits of Sweet Potato and Mushroom


Sweet potatoes and mushrooms are two delicious and nutrient-packed foods that offer a host of health benefits. When eaten together, they make a tempting and healthy vegan meal. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why sweet potatoes and mushrooms are good for you.


Mushrooms are low in calories but high in nutrients, making them a great addition to any diet. They’re also a good source of fiber, which helps to keep you feeling full and satisfied after eating. And if that’s not enough, mushrooms also contain compounds that can boost your immune system.

Sweet potatoes, on the other hand, are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, including beta-carotene, vitamin C, and potassium. They’re also a good source of fiber, which helps to regulate digestion. Plus, their natural sweetness means they can be used as a healthy alternative to sugary snacks. I suggest trying  Autumn Carrot-Sweet Potato Soup, Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie CasseroleSweet Potato Cheesecake, Sweet Potato Pie Cupcakes with Cinnamon Frosting, and Curried Lentil and Sweet Potato Bowl.

Plant-based ingredients and learn how to make them!


This vegan casserole is filled with nutritious ingredients that are easy to find in your kitchen even in the supermarket. If using a store-bought make a habit to check whether the label is vegan or organic. Be aware of some products say its pure organic but if you check the label there is animal derived in it.


To prepare the cream sauce, you will be using soaked cashews, cashew milk, nutritional yeast, oat flour, lemon juice, black pepper, and kosher salt. Process them into a food processor until creamy and smooth.


To prepare the filling, boiled the sweet potatoes while sauteeing the mushroom into garlic and onion with thyme, rosemary, and vinegar. Once done, remove from the heat then add the cranberries, panko bread crumbs, and chives and season with kosher salt and black pepper. Mix them well until combined.


To layer them into a casserole dish, first, you will need to pour a little amount of cream sauce followed by boiled sweet potatoes, and mushroom mixture. Just repeat it into the remaining cream sauce and sweet potato and mushroom filling.


Finally, preheat the oven to 400°F and bake for 30 minutes without cover. Once baked, remove from the preheated oven then garnish with fresh chives and served with cream sauce.


There you have it! Even though this vegan casserole requires a lot of ingredients, the flavor and nutrients it provides make it worthwhile.
