Did you know that Thanksgiving falls within Arkansas Soybean Month? This recipe from the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board offers a healthy alternative to the classic Thanksgiving tradition of sweet potato pie!



3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 large eggs
1¾ cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
12 ounces soymilk
1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pie shell
Whipped cream (optional)



Start by mixing the sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves in small bowl. In a separate, larger bowl beat the eggs. Stir in the sweet potatoes and sugar-spice mixture, then gradually stir in the soymilk.

Pour the mixture into the unbaked pie shell and bake in a pre-heated oven at 425°F for 15 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 350°F and bake another 40 to 50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 2 hours.

Serve immediately or refrigerate. Top with whipped cream before serving.
