Sweet Potatoes

Tempeh, Kale, and Sweet Potato Skillet

Tempeh, kale, and sweet potato skillet

This supremely nourishing trio of ingredients — tempeh, kale, and sweet potatoes — are the basis of a quick, colorful, and comforting meal. It’s an adaptable dish, too—don’t like tempeh? Use tofu, seitan, or a can of chickpeas or white beans instead. It’s great with chard in place of kale, as well. Great served with any of the slaw recipes on this site. Photos by Evan Atlas.   more→

Sweet Potato Pudding

Sweet potato pudding2

It all started with a leftover baked sweet potato that I put in the food processor with some other ingredients including nut butter, pumpkin pie spice, applesauce, coconut flour, almond milk, and dried currants. The consistency definitely ended up being more like a pudding. I served the final product with chopped pecans and a splash of almond milk for a wonderful dessert.

Miso Soup with Sweet Potatoes and Greens

Sweet potato and tender greens (choose from spinach, arugula, watercress, or tatsoi) synergize nicely in this quick miso soup. I prefer mellow white miso as the base for this soup, but use whatever variety of miso you like best, such as dark and hearty hatcho or barley miso. Photos by Evan Atlas. more→

Quinoa, Sweet Potato, and Corn Salad

This colorful main dish salad featuring sweet potato, quinoa, and corn is simple to prepare, yet has a festive “company’s coming” look. It makes a bountiful accompaniment to vegan quesadillas. If you can cook the sweet potatoes and quinoa ahead of time, this will come together in a flash when you want to serve it. Photos by Evan Atlas.   more→

Root Vegetable Hash Browns

Root vegetable hash browns

Ordinary potato hash browns are given an interesting twist with the addition of root vegetables — with a choice from among sweet potato, golden beets, turnips, parsnips, etc. Do try the optional tart apple — it adds a delightful flavor. This goes hand-in-hand with tofu scrambles, but you can use it as a cold-weather side dish with bean dishes.

Gingery Rice with Sweet Potatoes and Peas

Gingery rice with sweet potatoes and peas

I came across a classic Thai dish that combines white rice with white potatoes, and though it sounds too starchy, the seasonings and embellishments sounded appealing. So I took the general idea of this recipe and revved it up to include the two main ingredients’ more nourishing counterparts—brown rice and sweet potatoes. This may sound like an offbeat combination, but really, it works! It’s like sunshine on the dinner plate. You can also substitute quinoa or any other favorite grain for the rice. Serve with a simple tofu, tempeh, or bean dish and a salad. Adapted from Vegan Express.
