Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Prick sweet potatoes all over with a fork (hehe ... I said prick).
  • Place 3 pounds of sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and bake them until very tender when pierced with a knife, about an hour.
  • When cool enough to handle, halve potatoes and scoop out flesh with a spoon. If you don't totally destroy the skins while doing this, I suggest some baked potato skins!
  • Transfer potatoes to a food processor (not the skins!) along with 4 tablespoons of vegan butter, melted, 1/4 cup maple syrup, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon chili powder, processing until smooth. Enjoy!
