I remember the first time my mom taught me that you could cook a sweet potato in a microwave — talk about life changing. Sweet potatoes are one of the most versatile carbohydrates out there. From marshmallows to scrambled eggs, they can handle almost anything. As my way of saying thanks to this wonderful root vegetable, I am going to share with you three ways to add sweet potatoes to your dinner.
1. Mash ’em
A nutrient-packed alternative to regular mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes are the perfect winter comfort food.
Hint: they pair great with pork, like in this recipe below:
2. Sauté Away
Sautéed sweet potatoes are a quick and nutritious dinner side — you can even use them as a substitute for french fries.
Check out this recipe to try them out tonight:
3. Time to Roast
Roasted sweet potatoes are an almost hands-free way to elevate your cooking. I love roasting them with brussels sprouts for a perfect vegetable medley.
