today is national cook a sweet potato day! i absolutely love sweet potatoes. my very favorite way to enjoy sweet potatoes is to peel and dice them, boil them in water until tender, drain them, and then mash them with coconut milk. they are so delicious and creamy that way. i could eat them all day long. i love their vibrant bright orange color too!
sweet potatoes are low in fat and calories. they are a great source of vitamins A, B6, and C, as well as magnesium and fiber. (sweet potatoes are also great for your complexion too!)
to celebrate today, here are two easy and yummy sweet potato recipes that are both vegan: sweet potato black bean burgers and roasted sweet potato and carrot soup.
happy sweet potato eating!
