35 Delicious, Healthy Sweet Potato Recipes


Move over pumpkin, there’s a new ingredient in the spotlight today. I’m talking about delicious, super versatile sweet potatoes, of course!

In a season of all things butternut squash, apples, and pumpkin, I feel like people often forget about the magic of sweet potatoes. I’m here to remind you that not only are they amazing and easy to cook with, but I also have 35 recipes you should try ASAP.

These healthy sweet potato recipes are ones you can make for truly any meal of the day. I included both sweet and savory breakfast recipes, plenty of hearty main meals, a handful of wonderful snacks and side dishes, and even an epic dessert. Time to stock your pantry with this beautiful produce and get cooking!

Fall in love with sweet potatoes

I’ve been a sweet potato lover for as long as I can remember. They have a lovely natural sweetness and are the perfect ingredient for bulking up meals. Plus, they’re:

  • Packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber (to keep you full!) and antioxidants
  • Super versatile and can be used in place of potatoes, squash, and even pumpkin in many different recipes
  • Affordable! You can usually get a pound of sweet potatoes for under $1
