So Many Ways To Eat Sweet Potatoes!

Looking for creative ways to incorporate sweet potatoes in your diet? Here are some great recipes!

  • Roast sweet potatoes and red bell peppers together for a delicious mingling of flavors and then place over a bed of spinach or arugula and sprinkle with white balsamic vinegar. Serve this as side dish or add goat cheese and grilled chicken for a satisfying lunch.
  • You can make a creamy soup in a flash with the help of a food processor or blender. And vegetarians take note: it works just as well if you sub vegetable stock for chicken broth.
  • Make Sweet Potato Chips!
  • Grated sweet potatoes get mixed up with cinnamon, nutmeg, eggs, and flour to make a baked sweet potato latke!
  • Make Rosemary sweet potato wedges: Skip the home fries and try these sweet potato wedges instead. Baked in the oven, they are packed with beta-carotene and are lower in fat than a fried potato—but still have a satisfyingly crisp skin.
  • Mashed sweet potatoes
  • Sweet potatoes and apples turn greasy old hash browns into a sweet and healthy explosion of antioxidants.
