Move over avocado toast!
There has been major #foodporn all over Instagram lately, and whether it’s just a side effect of people trying out new and healthy recipes for the summer, or if we have just been obsessively following more foodie accounts (totally guilty) we have found some great food inspo for sweet potatoes.
The best thing about sweet potatoes, besides being great for your health, is their diversity in both taste and function. I mean HELLO you can make them into fries to indulge or you can bake them and put them in a salad for a healthy addition and a unique flavor.
So check out some of the most mouth-watering sweet potatoes and hopefully you will find a little extra food inspo for your next meal.
1. Sweet Potato Fries
First up the fries… We HAD to do these as one of the unhealthier indulgences. Remember, there are other alternative ways to cook fries to have your cheat day while trying to stay a little healthy.

Sweet potato “toast”, probably the latest and greatest of the sweet potato trend and it totally has our mouths watering. Basically, you thinly slice a sweet potato and then load it up with different toppings. The go-to is creating an avo toast but, as you can see, there are so many other topping options for your toast. We have total food envy of this and can’t wait to make one of our own.
3. Stuffed Sweet Potato
Whoops, forgot to post a photo of last week's stuffed sweet potato 🙃 So here you go … 🍋 Lemon Vinaigrette Stuffed Sweet Potato With Fennel and Quinoa. Recipe on the blog, so easy! Nothing screams early summer quite like fennel + lemon. Whip up a batch of this delightful lemon vinaigrette for your stuffed sweet potato on Monday and enjoy the leftover portion on salads, grains and grilled veggies all week long.
Stuffed sweet potato is a great way to utilize leftovers like corn, beans or chicken and mix it up inside of a baked sweet potato. This is not only a great way to add other food groups and protein to your potato, but it also helps you avoid loading your potato with butter and cinnamon sugar.
4. Sweet Potato Pie
Sweet potato pie… yummm! This makes our mouths water and think about Thanksgiving dinner. But sweet potato pie can be for any season and is a total fan favorite.
5. Sweet Potato Hash
Who said you can’t eat sweet potatoes for breakfast!? This sweet potato hash is a tasty and healthy option to eat with eggs in the morning. Plus it looks AMAZING.
6. Spiralized Sweet Potatoes
Pasta truly cannot compete with spiralized sweet potatoes. As a great and healthier alternative to regular pasta, you can seriously spiralize ANYTHING and it all tastes wonderful. Plus, now that spiralizing your favorite veggies is getting more popular there are so many great recipes online.

8. Sweet Potato Eggs Benedict
Kind of strange but surprisingly tasty. (or so I thought. Hubbie and children utterly unimpressed!) Roast sweet potato slices layered with avocado, cucumber, smoked salmon and a poached egg.
