Holiday meals can be tough for your average vegetarian. Even assuming that his family is sympathetic to his diet – and this is not a given – he’ll most likely be stuck with boring mashed potatoes and flavorless blanched green beans. We’ve got the perfect solution to this dilemma: sweet potatoes!
Sweet potatoes are rich in fiber and in vitamins A and C, and their flavor is more succulent and complex than that of starchy white potatoes. If you need some help getting inspired, read Our Top 10 Sweet Potato Recipes. Some of our best Thanksgiving recipes can be found in this collection, including Original Baked Sweet Potatoes and Peanut Butter-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. If you crave a traditional fried-potato taste, try Deep-Fried Sweet Potatoes and Sweet Potato Hashbrowns with Bacon. Sweet potatoes are so versatile that they can even make delicious desserts; for proof, make up a batch of crispy-sweet Sweet Potato Beignets.
Not only will the vegetarians thank you, but you might convert your whole family to a delicious and often-overlooked vegetable!
