Yummy, yummy sweet potato! Wait, what?!?! Yea, that’s exactly what I think when I hear my 3yr old say “yummy, yummy sweet potato” to anything that he thinks tastes good. Just saying “yummy” would work too but for some odd reason he always says “yummy, yummy sweet potato” even if it’s a cracker that has never been in the vicinity of one.
Weird or not, he sure is right that sweet potatoes are delicious. I might get bombarded with hate mail for saying this but I think they’re actually the only potato that tastes good. I buy sweet potatoes all year but prefer them in the fall when you can get them locally. I’ll be sharing 10 of the best gluten free and vegan sweet potato recipes from some of my favorite food bloggers today :)
Sweet potatoes are such a versatile vegetable that not only taste great in savory recipes but also in sweet ones. They are also packed with nutrients, minerals, and vitamins, contain twice the amount of fiber of white potatoes, great for skin, hair, and eye health, are heart healthy, and can lower blood pressure. I guess I’ll be taking two servings then..or three! Check out these other great sweet potato health benefits below.
