Sweet Potato Recipes

What’s your favorite fall vegetable? If you’re not saying “sweet potatoes!” with an exclamation, then, well, you might want to switch over to another post.

My favorite has to be the almighty and ever-so-versatile sweet potato. I love the way my kitchen smells when I roast them and I love how they’re easier to cut (without injury) than most squashes. For some sweet inspiration, here are some of our favorite recipes:

  1. Sweet potatoes just may be my most favorite vegetable as well. I know for 2 main reasons:
    1. I never EVER get tired of them.
    2. It’s one of the few vegetables I can get my fiance to eat on a regular basis and not complain about.

    All hail the sweet potato!

      Ha, well those are 2 good reasons 🙂

  2. I’m obsessed with sweet potatoes. That curried soup looks delicious!

  3. So much sweet potato goodness, I love it!! But I do stand by my favorite root vegetable, which is the regular potato 😉

    Sweet potatoes are the best! Those tacos look amazing, they will be pinned immediately to try out asap. I’ve got a recipe for a traditional Danish dish with a twist hitting the blog soon – it’s a sort of potato hash, but I’m using sweet potatoes because I simply cannot get enough of them. Thanks for sharing this!

    Sweet potato pancakes! If you haven’t tried them, you need to 🙂

  11. Thanks for the info and for all these recipes. I’m especially looking forward to trying the crostini and the pomegranate salad. You always share wonderful food.

  12. I have been buying sweet potatoes in bulk for the past month so you better believe I’m proclaiming them my fav fall food with an exclamation! Thanks for all of these tasty ideas!
