23 Recipes to Eat Sweet Potatoes All Year Long
Sweet potatoes aren’t just for the holiday season. We love them all year round – in game day appetizers, for special occasion dinners, or even when you’re ready to fire up the barbecue. They’re sweet enough for dessert but also super in savory dishes. They’re also packed with vitamins, so if one of your New Year’s resolutions (how are those going, by the way?) was to to add more nutrition into your diet, sweet potatoes are a delicious way to get that done.
1. Spicy Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup: Soup may be the ultimate comfort food, and this one is no exception. It’s hearty, healthy, and has a spicy kick to balance out the sweetness. (via A Beautiful Mess)
2. Honey Lime Quinoa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes: Quinoa is key to this dish and shares the sweet potato’s South American roots. (No pun intended.) The leftover sweet potato that you scoop out for the filling can give you a head start on another recipe, like the Sweet + Savory Enchiladas or Sweet Potato Hummus (below). (via Cooking Classy)
8. Sweet Potato Pudding: The sweetness and melt-in-your-mouth texture of cooked sweet potatoes practically begs to be made into pudding. The pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top add a nice contrast of flavor and color. (via Rachael Ray)
14. Sweet Potato Casserole With Pretzel Cranberry Topping: With the crunch of pretzels and pecans and the sweet-tartness of the cranberries, this family favorite is downright addictive. (via So Much Jane and Eugene)
18. Pan Fried MultiGrain Sweet Potato Ravioli: Use pre-made ravioli shells if you’re short on time or follow the recipe to make them yourself. While it’d be great for a romantic dinner or special occasion – seriously, why wait? (via The Well Floured Kitchen)
21. Sleepy Sweet Potatoes: A moment of being too tired to make a complex meal, we’ve had plenty of those. This dish is inspired by deconstructed Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie. We don’t think you’ll miss the extra steps. (via Chocolate Covered Katie)
23. Dad’s Sweet Potato Pie: Let’s finish off the roundup with some pie! This “famous” recipe comes from Joy the Baker’s dad, which makes us wonder when he’ll start his own food blog. (via Joy the Baker)
