10 Healthy Sweet Potato Recipes!
For a humble root vegetable, the sweet potato sure does have a lot going for it. The orange tuber packs 438% of your daily value of infection-fighting vitamin A and, like carrots, sweet potatoes are a major source of skin-protecting beta-carotene. While bananas are often touted as the go-to source of potassium, a medium sweet potato has 28% more potassium than a banana. (The mineral helps your body absorb fluids to replace sweat losses.)
Whether sweet potatoes only enter your kitchen on Thanksgiving or they have a regular spot in your cooking rotation, you could probably use more delicious ways to prepare them. Here are 10 recipes for dishes from fries to soup—each with about 300 calories or less.
Spicy Sweet Potato Fries
Roasted Sweet Potato Salad
Gingered Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup
Spiced Sweet Potato Chips
Baked Sweet Potato Latkes
Rosemary Sweet Potato Wedges
Chili-Spiced Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Apple and Sweet Potato Hash Browns
Ginger Sweet Potato Cheesecake
Marshmallow Whipped Sweet Potatoes
