Feastie Friday: Sweet Potato Top 5

When you think of sweet potatoes, do you think of the ooey, gooey, marshmallow-y, sugary sweet potato casseroles from Thanksgiving dinners past? Or those tooth-achingly sweet sweet potatoes packed in syrup in the can? The truth is that sweet potatoes are incredibly healthy and nutritious - and there's way more to sweet potatoes than a sugar-encrusted casserole. Sweet potatoes are showing up everywhere this season, in burgers and salads to pies and breads, in sweet and savory recipes of every kind. We've rounded up the top 5 sweet potato recipes on the web this week to help you get into your sweet potato groove. They're cheap, they're tasty, they're nutritious, they're versatile - stock up on sweet potatoes!

Did you know you can even cook a sweet potato in the microwave? Stab it a few times with a sharp knife, stick it on a plate, and cook for about 5 minutes, then flip over and cook for another 5. Wait a few minutes for it to cool, then cut it open and voila! Sweet potato! Top with some maple syrup and a pinch of brown sugar for the ultimate easy treat. 

Happy Eating,

Team Feastie
