Easy Ways to Enjoy Sweet Potatoes

Starchy and sweet-tasting, sweet potatoes contain high amounts of beta-carotene and rich sources of vitamins A and C, fiber and potassium. Most commonly orange in color, sweet potatoes also come in hues of white, purple and yellow. Incorporate more vibrant colors, nutritional benefits and delicious flavors into your meals year-round with sweet potatoes!

Selection & Storage Tips
Choose firm varieties with smooth textures and unblemished skins that feel heavy for their size. If you plan to cook them whole, buy similar-sized potatoes to keep the cooking time uniform. Store sweet potatoes in a cool, dark, well-ventilated area for three to four weeks.

Preparation Tips
Before cooking, rinse and scrub sweet potatoes under cold water to remove dirt or impurities from the skin. If you leave the skin on, you’ll receive twice as much fiber! Baked or broiled, savory or sweet, enjoy versatile sweet potatoes using our suggested ideas.

  • Add this sweet favorite to morning meals like omelets, frittatas, hashes or scrambles that help you start the day with high amounts of fiber and protein.
  • Sweet potatoes make a satisfying, healthy snack. Cut them into wedges, sprinkle with salt and bake at 400° for about 20 minutes for addicting sweet potato wedges. Or, blend them into a healthy hummus with chickpeas, tahini and olive oil and use veggies, pretzels or pita crisps for dipping.
  • For a hearty addition to comfort foods, add sweet potatoes to chili, soups, salads and stews. You can also try them in a veggie gratin or toss them into tacos on your next Mexican night.
  • Don’t forget dessert! Add the sweet, starchy goodness of sweet potatoes to pies, cookies, pudding, muffins or sweet potato bread.

Experiment with these easy sweet potato applications or use them as inspiration to boost the flavor and nutrition of daily meals!
