Sweet potatoes are arguably the best vegan staple food. They’re cheap, healthy, and so delicious! While sweet potatoes are great on their own, they are also super versatile and work well with so many different flavors. If you prefer something savory, you serve them in a stew or top them with beans and vegetables. If you like something a bit more sweet, you can mash them up to use as base for brownies and pancakes or top them with peanut butter and bananas. Sweet potatoes can even be used to make toast! They are super easy to make and can be used in almost any recipe that you would use a regular potato. Some might even argue that they are better than your plain old potato. Unconvinced? Try out these vegan sweet potato recipes and see for yourself!
