Sweet Potato Casserole

A sweet and nutty recipe for a Thanksgiving favorite. The pecan topping, while sweet, adds enough other flavors that it doesn't have the cloying effect that so many other sweet potato casseroles end up with. The recipe has no animal-derived ingredients, making it suitable for a vegan table.

¼ cupunflavored soy milk
1 tspvanilla extract
½ cupwhite sugar
½ tspsalt
3 Tbspcoconut oil, melted
