I really am not a fan of sweet potatoes. I do love cooked carrots though!

I do like them with lots of roast garlic and margarine- just boiled and mashed. And salt and pepper

Miso. I found that boiled and cubed, then sauteed in a strong miso broth till absorbed is really good. I like this with chopped greens and with some type of grain

I do not like them with added sweet, or things like cinnamon.

Last year I bought a bag of frozen sweet potato fries. I don't get the "fry" thing, because they're just like baked. I also dislike that they're affiliated with white potatoes because they're so very different. Anyway, I ended up adding them to curries. That was very convienent, and I think curry is probably my favorite spice for them.

So what do you like?

I've had sweet potato fires before which I'm obsessed with (but not as much as carrots, lol) and that's what I usually like to eat. I've had casserole and I actually found a twice baked sweet potato recipe on pinterest which I just tried this evening and I loved it!!

I just wrote a long post and it didn't go through. :/ I LOVE sweet potato and use it often.

For a shortened version, here are some sweet potato dishes I have made:

manicotti stuffed with a sweet potato ricotta (sweet potato, tofu, nutritional yeast and spices all crumbled together)

Sweet potato "cheese sauce" (steamed sweet potato blended with nutritional yeast, almond milk and spices that makes a very thick and creamy sauce; similar to the Oh She Glows blog "pumpkin cheese sauce"). I add it to macaroni for mac and cheese vegan style.

mashed sweet potato with either coconut milk (full or light fat from a can) or with crushed pineapple

sweet potato bars, cookies, pancakes, and biscuits are others I have used sweet potato in

Plain raw sweet potato for a snack

Baked sweet potato fries with chili powder and garlic or first dip in almond milk and roll in cornmeal and garlic and bake.

Best way to cook it for me is just to peel off the skin, chop, add to a steamer basket over a pot on the stove and steam for ten minutes to get it soft.

In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel

I made a sweet potato stew last night.

Onion
Red pepper
Garlic
Oregano
Lots of sweet potato
Okra
Corn
Diced tomato
Tomato paste
Agave
Top with cilantro

Sweet mashed sweet potato

Sweat a .5-1 to 1-1 ratio of diced apples to diced sweet potato. Depends on which apples you are using and how sweet you want the dish to be. Mash when cooked. Add cinnamon, nutmeg and salt to taste.
