GFGF - Vegan Sweet Potato Skillet

So this week in my Good Friends Good Food group I chose sweet potatoes for our vegetable base.  I did not know what I wanted to prepare with the potatoes, but I knew I wanted to try something totally different.  I love baked sweet potatoes with lots of butter and brown sugar cinnamon topping.  I love sweet potato casserole with pecans, brown sugar and even mini marshmallows on top.  I love candied sweet potatoes.  But I made this sweet potato skillet.
