HEALTHY MADE EASY! That's my motto. Here's just one '"easy as pie" example of a delicious side dish for Shabbos or Yom Tov, especially using my Instant pot and Vitamix. I serve this all the time for Shabbos lunch. The left overs, if there are any, are great as well. Enjoy L'chvod Shabbos!

Rivka's Easy Sweet Potato Pie


2-4 sweet potatoes, depending on how large you want it

Unsweetened vanilla plant milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional: Add a bit of maple syrup or date paste if sweet potatoes aren’t sweet enough


1 cup or more raw chopped pecans

Sprinkle or 2 of cinnamon

Drizzle of maple syrup to create slightly sticky crumb like mixture


  • Scrub and pierce sweet potatoes.

  • Cook or bake them until soft. (I love using my Instant pot for this!).

  • When done, put sweet potatoes in a high speed mixer (Vitamix) or food processor.*

  • Stream in unsweetened vanilla plant milk (as much as you need to get the mixture to move in the blender) or some of the water that you cooked the sweet potatoes in and blend on high to create pureed consistency.

  • Optional: If sweet potatoes aren't sweet enough, add maple syrup to taste.

  • Place sweet potato puree in an “oven to table” baking dish, like a Pyrex.

  • Mix topping and place on top of sweet potatoes. Bake for about 15-20 mins until the topping has slightly browned.

*This can be made with or without the skins intact. Keeping the skins on adds fiber and nutrition. I use my Vitamix to get those skins really blended in well and no one is the wiser! Great for babies and toddlers as well.


  • Can be made ahead and frozen. Warm up uncovered.

  • No need to buy chopped pecans and spend more. Give whole ones a quick pulse in the Vitamix or food processor to get the size pieces you want.
