10 Sweet Potato Dishes We're Currently Craving

Food & Drink

I've been a fan of sweet potatoes since my grandma used to bless me every holiday by putting her foot in her famous sweet potato pies. Over the years, that love for the starchy vegetable has grown to encompass into an affinity for roasted sweet potatoes, as well as a favorable alternative to traditional fries. If you can relate to either or all of those craving inclinations, this September, we have quite a few treats for you to help you switch up your approach to sweet potatoes. Lawd knows I need them.

Why? Well, aside from being one of many fruits and vegetables currently in-season this month, sweet potatoes are rich in fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, manganese, as well as vitamins B and C. They are also high in beta-carotene, an antioxidant that becomes vitamin A once ingested. From aiding with digestion, to improving your immune system, eating sweet potatoes on the regular comes with its share of health benefits. Plus, nothing says fall quite like it.

Check out the 10 dishes below that are sure to elevate the way you implement sweet potatoes in your meals.
