Here is a recipe from my Thanksgiving, scaled for two. It's
vegan as written but if you are lacto, I think it would be quite good
with nonfat buttermilk instead of soymilk. I used "Better Than Milk",
light which is kind of sweet. I like this stuff because it comes in
powdered form but it is mighty sweet.
Creamy Sweet Potato Casserole by Hulbe
2 med sweet potatoes (1/2 lb)
8 dried apricot halves
1/4 Cup raisins
1/2 Cup cranberries
1-1/2 Cups light soymilk, plain
2 Tbsp rice flour or cornstarch
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground ginger
dash ground cloves
Steam sweet potato until just tender. Peel and cut into 1/2
inch pieces. Cut each dried apricot half into 8 or 10 pieces.
Put sweet potato, apricot pieces, raisins, and cranberries into
a medium sized bowl.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 4 cup casserole dish
with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small saucepan, heat soymilk to steaming. Reduce heat
to low. Remove several Tbsp. of milk to a small bowl and mix
in the rice flour. Stir rice flour paste into soymilk. Cook,
stirring constantly, until sauce thickens enough to coat the
back of a spoon.
Fold sauce into potato and fruit mixture. Spoon into
prepared casserole and bake 30 minutes.
