Smoky Maple Sweet potato pie

My good friend Sara sent me a delicious sweet potato pie recipe years ago and this recipe is inspired from there. .
3 cups sweet potato, peeled and cut into chunks
1/4 cup coconut cream or soy milk
1 egg, beaten
Salt and pepper 
1 tbsp avocado oil
1/2 red onion, peeled and thinly sliced 
1 tsp cinnamon
1.5 oz gourmet salami, chopped into small pieces – I used @amsellemgourmet_butcher chorizo 
2 medjool dates, pitted and cut into small pieces 
1/3 cup chopped pecans 
3 tbsp maple syrup, divided 
1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped .
Preheat oven to 350°F. 
Boil sweet potato in water until a fork goes through easily. Drain, transfer to a bowl and mash. 
Mix in coconut cream, egg, salt and pepper to sweet potato. Transfer to a pie dish to bake. 
While sweet potato is cooking, start sautéing onion in oil at medium heat – onions should slowly turn translucent and then start caramelizing. Once golden brown, add in cinnamon and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add in salami, dates, pecans, 2 tbsp maple syrup and rosemary. Cook for another minute, until well incorporated. 
Spread pecan salami mixture over sweet potato and drizzle on remaining maple syrup. 
Bake for about 25-30 minutes (checking to make sure it doesn’t burn).
