A comforting sweet potato mash recipe
Sweet potato mash is so easy to make. Peel your sweet potatoes and cut them into smallish cubes and drop them into boiling water. Boil them until they are soft and ready to mash – but do not boil them too much or they will simply turn into mush and lose their vitamins. Drain the potatoes and mash them with a little butter (or a vegan alternative) and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Add cream or soy milk if you prefer. Top with cheese or nutritional yeast and serve.
Easy, elegant sweet potato fries
Follow this sweet potato fries recipe and you have a great snack and a delicious side dish for all number of meals. Chop your sweet potatoes into long, slim pieces – keeping the skin on locks in more nutrients and also (many people agree) tastes better. Toss the raw fries in a couple of spoonfuls of olive oil and a little pepper. Add salt if you prefer, though this is not needed. Some people like the taste even more when the fries are sprinkled with parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast and perhaps a little rosemary too before they are cooked. Bake until crispy and serve with ketchup, mayo, chipotle, guacamole or other dips of your choice.
A scrumptious baked sweet potato recipe

Slice it in half and stuff it with whatever you like: sour cream, guacamole, bacon and lettuce or hummus and grated carrot.
