Sweet potatoes come in two varieties: one with a lighter, white flesh, and an even sweeter cultivar with a bright orange interior. When shopping for these tubers, look for moderately sized versions with taut, smooth skin and tapered ends.
Whether you roast, fry, or mash them, sweet potatoes are a welcome addition to any Fall meal. In the US, sweet potatoes are a staple of many a traditional Fall feast, but they're not just known and loved in the States; all over the globe people prepare sweet potatoes, bringing their own traditional flavors to the mix.
Here are some ways to enjoy sweet potatoes this Fall:
- Slice them up for oven-baked sweet potato fries, paired with a creamy avocado dip.
- Sweet potatoes, bacon, and crème fraîche combine to create the filling of endive boats.
- Let the sweet potato's flavor speak for itself in a super simple roasted recipe.
- Spicy black bean and sweet potato cakes are a party-pleasing choice of appetizer!
