Nut Free Comforting Sweet Potato Casserole {with Cardamom Essential Oil}

Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorite naturally sweet vegetables. Being that they’re orange is great because they are packed with vitamin A! They are also a good source vitamin C and vitamin B6 as well as fiber. I remember the first time I introduced sweet potatoes after going 365 days without any sugar – even fruit sugar. It was pure decadence. Seriously, I felt like I was eating candy! I can’t tell you how thankful I was.

I wanted to make a traditional sweet potato casserole but wanted to step it up a bit and add some pizzazz to it. This recipe has all the basics of a good sweet potato casserole but had added essential oils which boost the flavors immensely and bring a uniqueness to the dish that I have never tasted before. Another fantastic component of my casserole is adding my AIP Baked Apple Cinnamon Granola as a topping. It’s nut free and the crunch with the creaminess of the sweet potato is delicious. You won’t need a whole batch of granola for the topping which means you’ll have a good amount left over for snacking! It’s one of my favorite snacks.

Let’s Talk Briefly About The  Essential Oils in This Dish

It is so enjoyable to cook with essential oils. They really boost the flavor of a dish and add a therapeutic twist to an already nutrient-dense dish. Two of my favorite warming oils to use during cooler months is doTERRA Cinnamon Bark and doTERRA Cardamom.

Cinnamon Bark

For the corporate use of doTERRA International LLC. File distrobution and third party use/sales are restricted.

This oil is steam distilled from the bark of the tree. It has strong cleansing and immune supporting properties and can help maintain a healthy metabolic function. It has a long history of culinary uses. You can also dilute it with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil and create a warming massage for cold, achy joints during winter time or place 1 drop of doTERRA Cinnamon essential oil in hot water or tea and drink slowly to soothe your irritated throat.*

Cardamom

For the corporate use of doTERRA International LLC. File distrobution and third party use/sales are restricted.

Cardamom is the world’s third most expensive spice only surpassed by vanilla and saffron! The kind I use is grown and distilled in Guatemala. It has a very unique taste and is a spice often found in Indian cooking. Think Chai Latte or Chai tea taste. It is an intensely aromatic essential oil. {I use it in my warm drinks as well.} doTERRA Cardamom Essential Oil may help ease indigestion and maintain overall gastrointestinal health, *promote clear breathing and respiratory health*, and it helps alleviate occasional feelings of stomach discomfort*
