Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Bites with Cranberry Balsamic Glaze are the perfect plant-based Thanksgiving meal! They are a hearty bite that is full of Fall flavor.
Thanksgiving is almost here! One of the most challenging things to serve at The Big Meal as a plant-based eater, is the main course. Sides are aplenty, dessert is usually covered, but what do you eat when you don’t eat the turkey?
Try these Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Bites with Cranberry Balsamic Glaze.
They are a hearty, warming, Fall-inspired meal that includes all of the favorite Thanksgiving flavors. Sweet potato, check. Cranberry sauce, check. Herbs like sage and thyme, check and check.
Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Bites with Cranberry Balsamic Glaze is fairly easy to make, although a little time consuming, but we are talking about Thanksgiving here. Pull out your pans, preheat your oven, this is the cooking Big League and you are going to crush the game.
You want to start with the meatless balls. The easiest way to make these is with a food processor. It will chop, mix and do the hard work for you. Once the sweet potatoes, beans, oats, and seasonings are broken down and form a dough, all you have to do is roll them in oats to create a crunchy crust and bake them to golden brown.
While the Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Bites are cooking away, its time to make our sauce, which is as simple as simmering the ingredients until they are tender and the sauce has thickened.
To make this a one-dish meal, I like to serve it with some cooked rice. If you are eating this on Thanksgiving and want to serve it with a range of other sides, the Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Bites are perfect on their own with the Cranberry Balsamic Glaze spooned on top.
