We are on a bit of a sweet potato kick lately. I’ve prepared them a few ways like my mashed sweet potatoes with sage brown butter or sweet potato rice but one of my favorites is simply roasting them. They taste great and they are incredibly easy to prepare.
These sweet potatoes would make a great side dish, a great alternative to French fries, and my kids even eat them by the plate full for lunch.
Sweet potatoes are often a fall food but if you are lucky you can find sweet potatoes year round in the grocery store. My kids always bemoan the end of sweet potato season as we tend to buy our sweet potatoes from Costco and I’ve had bad luck when I’ve tried to by them at Costco when it wasn’t in season.
We either can’t find them at Costco at all because it’s out of season (which quite honestly is the way things should work) or I buy a bag only to find that the sweet potatoes have turned to mush. Yuck!
So we stick to buying in season when it comes to sweet potatoes now.
Sweet Potatoes are a great food to add to your diet because they are high in antioxidants, fiber, potassium, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and folate. These vegetables contain a lot of goodness in them!
