Sweet spuds are versatile and easy to cook with. They can be roasted, used to make burgers and quinoa cakes, added to mouthwatering salads and much, much more! In our opinion there really are no bad ways to do up a sweet potato dish. Pies, fries, waffles, diced you name it. We do it in all one and love every one of them. Talk about a tasty way to stay healthy. Maybe you have a recipe that makes your taste buds swoon, but here are just a few pictures to give you some idea’s for preparation.
Cinnamon Apple Sweet Potato Waffles

The twist here is that the sweet potatoes are put through a spiralizer, just like you’d make zoodles. So smart! The recipe only has three other ingredients (egg, apple, cinnamon) and we are impressed by this nutritious spin on a breakfast food that’s usually all empty calories.
Grilled Sweet Potato Fries
Nutrition: 255 calories, 6.6 g fat (1 g sat fat), 483 mg sodium, 7 g fiber, 0.8 g sugar, 2.6 g protein
Fries don’t have to be fried to be totally addictive. You can give sweet potato fries a tasty smoky flavor by grilling them; the twist on your tastebuds helps balance the spud’s natural sweetness.
Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie

A comforting classic goes vegan in this recipe, but—trust us— you won’t miss the meat. Stewed lentils dish up plenty of flavor on top of their fiber and protein, without any of those after-feast feelings of diet guilt.
