Sweet potato is an invaluable kitchen hero! It's a wonderfully versatile vegetable that is low GI, provides a wonderful, natural sweetness and can be used in myriad ways. Try sweet potato as a latte drink, a cake frosting, to flavour bread, as toast and for fries!
Sweet potato lattes are a delicious and warming drink made with milk, sweet potato and maple syrup. Sweet potato latte is popular in Korea where it is called Goguma latte. It is so easy to make and you can also make it vegan using oat milk or coconut milk!
This vegan cake is my classic chocolate vegan cake just amplified so that it bakes fat, fluffy slices and the topping is a revelation-instead of butter use sweet potato to give it sweetness, creaminess and volume without adding butter or a lot of sugar!
It's bread baking season everywhere no? And why have regular bread when you can add the goodness of sweet potato to a loaf of bread and get the extra goodness and nutrition from it!
Ok so this sweet potato toast is totally wacky but it works. Sweet potato is toasted in the toaster or grill and then topped with your favourite sweet or savoury toppings!
Fries are a reason to live but imagine wrapping them in bacon and making the fries out of sweet potato! YES! So easy but so tasty the pay off is in the sweet, salty fries that are baked, not deep fried.
So tell me Dear Reader, what is your favourite way to eat sweet potatoes?
