Your thoughts may be all about the turkey this week, but don’t forget about the sweet potatoes. As a child, my impression of sweet potatoes was that they were vegetables with marshmallows on top. That didn’t sound appetizing to me, and I never gave them a chance. As an adult, I realized that sweet potatoes can be so much more. Baked, served on salad, or made into fries, sweet potatoes make the perfect addition to your meal. Check out the Top Ten Ways to Enjoy Sweet Potatoes from fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org. Find the recipes mentioned, plus a few of my favorites, at the end of this post.
With a little bit of seasoning and a few toppings, you’ll have lunch or dinner ready in no time. Enjoy!
