Hearty, seasonal, room temperature side dish that will kick up the flavor on any meal.
Sweet Potato Apple Soup with Rosemary Infused Mascarpone and Roasted Fennel
With so many sweet potatoes and apples in our winter veggie CSA I had to figure out *something* to make with them. The fennel and mascarpone just top it off with a luxurious touch.
Smooth Autumn Soup with Bacon and Crispy Leeks
My go-to choice when I’m in the mood for creamy butternut soup. The melded flavors of sweet potatoes, carrots, and squash are balanced out by the salty bacon and leeks.
Sweet Potato Muffins
Inspired by and adapted from a post on the Hampshire College Food, Farm, and Sustainability blog.
Sweet Potatoes with Collards and Aduki Beans
Slightly bitter collards contrasted by chunks of soft, slightly caramelized sweet potato. Add the crunchy texture and nutty flavor of toasted sunflower seeds, and the sweet and tangy pop! of freshly squeezed lime and my mouth simply does cartwheels.
Sweet Potato and Kidney Bean Chili
The flavor of the green bell pepper transforms from an underripe, sharp, crisp bite to something soft and sweet. The ancho chili and crushed red pepper are balanced by the sweet potato and carrots. The mushrooms provide a welcome texture contrast. There is nothing boring about this dish.
Honey Soy Glazed Root Vegetables
If you’ve never eaten a cooked radish then you’re missing out.
Creamy Sesame Greens
While looking through some recipes on the Whole Foods website I came across this one and thought that it would make for a great side to some simple white fish.
Sweet Potato Cake with Rum-Plumped Raisins and Spiked Sugar Glaze
Dense flavor and sweetness from the sweet potatoes and rum-soaked raisins.
Sweet Potato Sausage Soup
Chorizo is a good sausage choice to pair with the sweet potato in this, but you can opt for whatever floats your boat.
