Sweet potatoes are perfect when you’re looking for comfort food. As a vegan, a single sweet potato makes a great mealtime filler–one of nature’s best ways to bulk up dinner with flavor, nutrients, and satisfying carbs. Ever since I saw Kathy Patalsky’s Sweet Potato Veggie Burger with Avocado, I’ve been enamored with the idea of serving sweet potatoes…not AT dinner, but FOR dinner. More than just a side dish, sweet potatoes easily transform through sauteeing, baking, and pureeing, making them perfect for pastas, soups, salads, and more. If you’re looking for some beautiful, seasonal dishes this autumn, here are 21 wonderful ways to eat sweet potatoes for dinner. Enjoy!
