Prep with Me: Shrimp and Sweet Potato Casserole

Hey Guys  you know that meal planning and prepping is something that I absolutely love to do and I decided to share some of the fun things I have been cooking and eating each week. so be sure to keep an eye out. try them out and let me know how you like the recipes.

This week I made a yummy casserole that to be honest I had no clue how it would turn out but I wanted to try it any way. So here is what you’re going to need:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 lb of shrimp
  • 3 garlic cloves (diced)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp of Flour ( I used spelt flour)
  • 1 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup of corns
  • 1/2 cup of sweet peas
  • 1/2 cup pre combined cheddar and mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • salt and cayenne to your liking.

gather your ingredients

I decided to use a spiralizer and make sweet potato noodles to see how they would look but you can choose to simply cube your potatoes instead. Just ensure your cube are fairly small to allow it to cook through in the 30 minutes it took me. Then your shrimp by washing them in a vinegar  or lemon solution and set aside.

Preheat your oven at 350C.

Next place a sauce pan on the stove on medium heat as we work on our white sauce. For this you will need your coconut oil, flour and milk. Place your coconut oil into the sauce pan and allow it to melt then  add garlic and cook until translucent. Next add your flour,  and slowly add milk whisking as you pour to combine  flour. Continue stirring until the sauce is smooth and lump free. Once the sauce is smooth and thick, add salt and cayenne to your desired taste followed by your shrimp, corn and peas. Allow to cook for another 5-7 minutes.

Pour the mixture into a bowl and combine with the potatoes and half of the shredded cheese.
