These Sweet Potato Recipes Are Making Us So Excited for Fall (1)

As the weather starts getting cooler, there's nothing better (or cozier!) than a delicious sweet potato recipe. Packed with healthy nutrients like fiber and Vitamin A, sweet potatoes are not only easy to prepare, they're also incredibly versatile. You can mash 'em and bake 'em as a Thanksgiving side dish, blend them into cozy fall soups or even dice them and roast for the perfect topper to any healthy salad. They're great for meal prep too — just dice, roast and enjoy all week alongside grilled chicken, seared steak, on top of salads, grain bowls or even with pasta! Trust us, if you haven't tried roasted sweet potatoes stirred into mac n' cheese, you have not lived. It adds the perfect sweet contrast to all of that savory, cheesy goodness.

The best part about sweet potatoes? You'll never get sick of 'em! They're delicious grilled in the summer, roasted in the fall, mashed in the winter and seared in stir frys in the spring. Sweet potatoes can even be dessert ("sweet" is in the name, after all). From sweet potato pie to marshmallow-topped sweet potato casserole, it's so much more than a savory, starchy vegetable. So study up on this roster of sweet potato recipes, because you'll be cooking them all year long.
