A few months ago, I gushed about the beauties of potatoes and how versatile they are. I decided to do a part two but for the healthier cousin of potatoes: sweet potatoes. Just like regular potatoes, they are wonderful, diverse but they're a unique orange color (really indicative of how nutritious it is). Also, because sweet potatoes are so "sweet", they're perfect for dessert type meals.
1. Sweet potato fries
Once again, OG fries know no boundaries even in sweet potato form. And yes regular fries, they're you but stronger (and healthier too).
2. Mashed sweet potatoes
mashed and sweet; simple and easy
3. Sweet potatoes with marshmallows
4. Sweet potato pie
5. Roasted sweet potatoes
6. Sweet potatoes tater tots
Now to head into sweet potato territory I haven't entered before (brb going to go try all of them now)
7. Sweet potato cups
8. Sweet potato doughnuts
9. Sweet potato biscuits
10. Sweet Potato pancakes
11. Sweet potato cupcakes
12. Sweet Potato smoothies
Anything can be put into a smoothie really (if you just believe) so I'm not really surprised sweet potatoes are an option. Can't wait to try this one!
13. Sweet potato bread
No words need to be said about bread, I'm sure this version of bread is equally as tasty.
As you can see, sweet potatoes are just slightly cooler than potatoes because they can make more desserts and baked goods (if you're into that kind of stuff). But good ole potatoes are a lot more savory (so perhaps they're slightly better). Some might be wondering, where are the sweet potato wedges, the baked sweet potatoes, well sweet potatoes are still potatoes so they can take many regular potato forms. Basically, there was no need to reiterate all of it or the list would be endless and doubly long. Once again, here's to potatoes: sweet potato editions for being so wonderful and multi-faceted.
