Sweet potatoes are that incredible root veggie that add just the right amount of sweetness to your savory dishes! They also give your meals that gorgeous, vibrant color thanks to their beta-carotene content which also make it a powerhouse, healthy food. Although sweet potatoes shine in all kinds of dishes from breakfast to dessert, we especially enjoy them in entrées. That’s why we put together these 15 delicious sweet potato entrée recipes from our Food Monster App, and we made sure to include plenty of curries because sweet potato can only make curry better!
