This recipe is a family favorite. I'm the only vegan in my family, but I always have this requested for holidays and birthdays alike. It's really almost like a sweet potato cheesecake filling. I've found that fresh sweet potatoes result in a highly superior product than with canned sweet potatoes. If you love pumpkin pie or sweet potatoes give this recipe a try- trust me one bit and you'll be hooked!

What a delicious recipe! I roasted the sweet potatoes for ~ 2 hours (Stupendous Slow Baked Sweet Potatoes), which makes them very sweet. I used just over 1/2 cup turbinado sugar in place of the brown sugar. I omitted the margarine in the filling. For the topping, I splurged and used 4 tablespoons of butter and cut the sugar to 1/2 cup. Everyone raved about this dish and said how silky smooth the filling was. I thought it was fantastic and I can't wait to eat the leftovers for dinner tonight.

We had this at Thanksgiving. Everyone, vegan or not raved about it. We're doing it again for Christmas.

Interesting idea, but the end result is nothing resemblent of a traditional souffle. As a souffle, I can't give it a high rating.
