The 5 Best Sweet Potato Recipes

Sharing is caring!

Some of my favorite meatless dishes include many sweet potato recipes. I used to eat mostly vegetarian (I say mostly because once in a while I’d cook something with chicken). Since most of my meals consisted of vegetables, I needed a way to feel full and satisfied so I wouldn’t feel starved in a couple of hours. That’s when I discovered sweet potatoes and how amazing they are!

Healthy and easy snacks for work

Sweet potatoes are rich in Vitamin A, B6, C, and D. As well as a good source for potassium, magnesium, and iron. They’re good for the immune system and they won’t increase your blood sugar (I swear this isn’t an ad for sweet potatoes. They’re just that fantastic!). With all of these health benefits, you’re going to want to make them in more ways than just baked.

So here are 5 sweet potato recipes that I’ve used and love so much that I re-make them monthly:

1. Sweet Potato and Black Bean Street Tacos

Almost replaces my Culver’s cheeseburger. Almost.

3. Sweet Potato Corn Cakes

These are AMAZING! But don’t make great leftovers. So cut the recipe in half or share with friends.

4. Sweet Potato, Kale, and Shrimp Skillet
