Grated Gluten Free Sweet Potato Casserole

Grated Gluten Free Sweet Potato Casserole

You might be asking why I now have two published gluten free sweet potato casserole recipes, when my other recipe is called “Favorite Gluten Free Sweet Potato Casserole.” Is this grated gluten free Sweet Potato Casserole less of a favorite?

Well, in short, it’s actually my other favorite gluten free sweet potato casserole. 

They’re both good enough to eat for breakfast (yep, done that), but they’re totally different from one another in one major way: this one is made with grated sweet potatoes and the other with mashed, cooked sweet potatoes. The end result is a distinctly unique texture for each that I can’t choose between, nor should I! When they’re both this good, it’s nice to have choices.

This grated version is similar to a recipe my mother made all my life and I remember fondly, which is why I was happy to be able to bring it back and share it with you! Other than making it dairy-free, the only other real change I’ve made is to substitute my gfJules Flour for regular wheat flour. It DOES make a difference what gluten free flour you use.

My gfJules Flour is light and clean tasting without any grit; if you use brown rice flour blends or bean flour blends or anything with a funky taste or texture, your gluten free sweet potato casserole will taste funky or have an odd texture too. So just don’t. Your sweet potato casserole is worth using the best flour, don’t you think?

Whichever gluten free sweet potato casserole you decide to make first, I highly recommend trying them both so you can see which your family prefers — or maybe you’ll rotate back and forth between recipes like we do. Thanksgiving is the perfect time to experiment because I never heard anyone complain that there were too many sweet potato choices!

For this recipe, all you’ll need are a few simple ingredients you probably already have at home, plus sweet potatoes, of course! I suggest using a food processor like this Cuisinart, as grating sweet potatoes by hand is not my idea of a fun way to spend some time in the kitchen. I’m also totally paranoid of scraping my knuckles off! But maybe that’s just me ….

Surprisingly, the six cups of grated sweet potato needed for this recipe can be derived from just one large sweet potato. Of course, all sweet potatoes are different sizes, so you may want to have another on hand just in case, and always measure before adding when it comes to fruits, veggies and squash called for in recipes. 

Follow the simple recipe below to mix the ingredients, then pour into your favorite 9×13 baking dish.
