There’s so much to love about sweet potatoes. All that flavor, budget friendly and so good for your body! Back in February, we shared 20 ways to eat a sweet potato. Now we’re back with even more ways to enjoy this root vegetable with benefits.
Sweet potatoes are :
- Rich in Vitamins A and C, and E
- A great source of beta-carotene, fiber and potassium.
All in all, a great choice for your diet. As you’ll see from these recipes, they’re also versatile. When you’ve got some sweet potatoes on hand, and want to try a new way to enjoy them, give these recipes a try.
If you’re not feeling creative, go for a traditional baked sweet potato. Preheat your oven to 400° and bake for an hour. Be sure to pierce the potato a couple times with a knife or fork before baking, to allow for expansion in the oven. Once baked, top with some sea salt and butter for a savory taste, or cinnamon and maple syrup for sweet. Delicious!
