Unless they are made into crispy potato chips or wedges, I am really not a big fan of the sweet potato: The texture is horrible! No doubt it has many healthy benefits, however I am sure these vitamins and minerals can be found in other food sources too! Perhaps I would consider the soup though... ;-)

Aaah! The sweet potato salad looks great!! We eat sweet potatoes all the time, and I'm definitely on the lookout for more recipes. We have two favorites though: 1)diced beets and sweet potatoes drizzled with olive oil and salt, and baked until tender. mmm. a definite go-to. 2)Diced sweet potatoes with just a touch of olive oil, sprinkled with Thyme, salt, and parmesean cheese, baked again until tender. This is my current favorite...we've actually got it in the over as we speak!!

I prepare a recipe that is pretty nice, they are some tortillas made with sweet potato and filled with cheese, sautéed in a skillet, with some oil, they are pretty delicious and other thing you can do is frying slices of sweet potato and make your own healthy snack, that's the way I consume this plant

The only person I know that loves sweet potato is my grandma and she knows so many recipes with it, or she prepares the common recipes with potato or things like that but using the sweet potato as main ingredient, the next time I visit her I'll ask her for some recipes and I will share with u

maybe you should try it too! it is pretty nice once you find a recipe that you enjoy, like mashed sweet potato or puree, or even tortillas!

This is an ingredient that most people do not enjoy and this can be understood but maybe it is because they have not tasted the variety of dishes that can be made with this indredient, this is very bad because you could learn something new and taste something you never have tasted.
