This sweet potato soup’s texture is amazingly creamy. It is smooth, velvety, and creamier than many common cheese sauces or cream soups. It’s also the perfect base that many herbs and spices can be added to for endless different flavor combinations. Use it as a sauce or simply a creamy soup that is delicious paired with many foods. You have to try Kristina Humphreys‘ Sweet Potato Soup!
2. BBQ Pulled Jackfruit With Oven-Baked Potatoes
3. Potato Pancakes

These tasty Potato Pancakes by Olivia Andrews are inspired by Korean potato pancakes, which usually use potato starch, giving them a really nice chewy, gelatinous texture. If you’re not so fond of the texture, you can use cornflour instead of potato starch, which is more widely available. I find equal parts of each is a happy medium.
4. Curried Sweet Potato Mac n’ Cheese
It’s creamy, it’s cheesy, and it’s super easy and quick to make. This vegan Curried Sweet Potato Mac n’ Cheese by Taavi Moore has hints of curry flavor and an uber creamy texture. Topped with breadcrumbs and quickly broiled to create a perfectly crispy top.
5. Sweet Potato and Red Pepper Soup
