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)

3. Sweet + Savory Enchiladas: Another great combination of sweet, savory and spicy! Substitute leftover or rotisserie chicken if you don’t have turkey on hand. (via Brit + Co)


4. Vegan Sweet Potato and Five Spice Muffins: These spiced muffins would be a sweet way to wake up! The recipe includes a gluten-free variation. (via Pink Patisserie)

5. Sweet Potato Hummus: We love hummus in all its forms and think this dip would be amazing with crudités or pita. (via Scandi Home)

6. Adult SpaghettiOs: This recipe is described as “a celebration of bacon,” and it’s a grown-up take on the SpaghettiOs we may have secretly never grown out of. We might be in love. (via TasteFood)

7. Thanksgiving Flatbread: Spread a pizza crust with sweet potato, and use that as the base to pile on tasty toppings to upcycle your leftovers any time of year. (via Brit + Co)

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)

9. Sweet Potato Hobo Packs: If you are picnicking, camping, or just backyard barbecueing, add wrapped sweet potatoes to the coals for a simply delicious side. (via Kinfolk)

10. Sweet Potato Chip Chicken: The crunchy coating for this chicken is made with sweet potato chips, which you can buy or DIY. (via Gimme Some Oven)

11. Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers: Vegan patties made with sweet potatoes, white beans, tahini, and maple syrup? Even omnivores will be going back for second helpings. (via Healthy. Happy. Life.)

12. Spicy Beef and Sweet Potato Tacos: Take Taco Tuesday to a whole new level! You can make the filling and prep the veggies ahead of time for a quick lunch or dinner. (via Poor Girl Eats Well)

13. Sweet Potato Kale Frittata: We love sweet potato frittatas for brunch and can’t wait to try this variation! (via Damn Delicious)

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)

15. Sweet Potato Parmesan Tater Tots: Made from sweet potatoes coated with sweet potato chips and served with Sriracha ketchup, these are some flippin’ sweet tots. (via Half Baked Harvest)

16. Curry Roasted Sweet Potatoes: It takes just four ingredients to make this delish side dish that you’ll want to curry up and try already. (via The Splendid Table)

17. Crockpot Sweet Potato Chicken Chili: We love coming home to a hot dinner that’s already made, especially when it’s easy to pull together on a hectic morning. (via Ari’s Menu)

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)

19. Sweet Potato Latkes With Cinnamon Sugar Ricotta: Break with tradition and try our take on latkes for breakfast or dessert. (via Brit + Co)

20. Honey-glazed sweet potatoes: Whether you’re preparing a feast or just a busy weeknight meal, you can whip up this simple side in no time. (via Brit + Co)

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)

22. Skinny Sweet Potato Fries: We love these healthier fries alongside a grilled turkey and cheese, but they’d also be great with a burger, fish, or grilled chicken. (via Brit + Co)

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)
