Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole

This recipe was created by Karen Wiens on 1/30/15.

We’ve been making white potato hash browns in the house quite often in the mornings and I wanted to try something using the healthier and more flavorful sweet potato. I had the idea to make something akin to a crust with the sweet potato hash browns to hold a yummy Mexican concoction. I was pleased to see the whole thing eaten in one sitting by the fam! Let me know what you think.
Serves 8
20 minutes to prepare
30 minutes to cook
2 red garnet sweet potatoes, large, peeled and shredded
