Not only are sweet potatoes an affordable and healthy source of carbohydrates, but they also contain vitamins A, B and C and are rich in fiber. The antioxidant beta-carotene gives them their bright hue and, compared with white potatoes, sweet potatoes have fewer calories and total carbs. From hearty toast for breakfast to delicious brownies for dessert, these 19 recipes give you inspiration to enjoy sweet potatoes in every meal.
