  1. Maple syrup and sweet taters are a no-go.
  2. Next time I will peel potatoes before cooking. The topping was very unique & delicious. .
  3. Sounds good. I would do lemon juice instead of orange juice.
  4. Nice vegan side dish for the Holidays that pleases the entire family.
  5. I would say maybe do a little less orange juice. But we did only have 3 SMALL potatoes vs 3 large, so maybe that was the problem because you could taste the orange juice at times. Overall was good!
  6. Was very easy to make and it came out great.
  7. Super good recipe!!! A bit too much cinnamon for me but still good. I love the topping and I suggest at least doubling the amount called for so the top can be covered. My boys gobbled it up and had no idea that it was Vegan.
