Potatoes– This dish calls for sweet potatoes, but you can easily use white potatoes as well. The color will be a little different, and they will be less sweet, but they are just as good. You also can omit potatoes all together and use another starch, such as more butternut squash, acorn squash or turnips.
Butternut Squash– You may use an alternative to this, such as acorn squash. You may also omit this entirely and solely use sweet potatoes.
Garlic– You may omit garlic if you do not like the taste, or you may sub this for 1 tbsp of garlic powder. If you do use powder, do not microwave it with the butter.
Chives- You may omit this ingredient, or you may use onions, shallots or bunching onions.
Vegan Cream Cheese- You can substitute vegan sour cream for this.
Other Option Toppings- Caramelized onions, vegan bacon, vegan cheddar cheese and rosemary would all be excellent additions.
