20 irresistible ways to enjoy sweet potatoes

Sometimes, while I’m browsing through Pinterest or other veggie food blogs, I look at the amazing recipes that can be prepared with vegetables and I truly wonder why I didn’t become vegetarian a lot sooner.

Today’s recipe round-up is all about comfort food the veggie way as I explore some interesting and scrumptious ways to cook sweet potatoes. And if you could see how nasty the weather has turned here in Yorkshire today, you’d understand why it’s one of those occasions when only comfort food will suffice!

As you’re just about to find out, sweet spuds are not just for baking. You can enjoy them in soups, tortillas, curries and even pizza! So stock up this autumn and give these recipes a try…
