The Lightest Sweet Potato CasseroleThere's nothing not to love about sweet potatoes. For one, the sweet orange goddess is one of the stars of the Thanksgiving feast. However, there is more to sweet potatoes than casseroles and pies, even though a sweet marshmallow and pecan casserole (shown left) is totally top-notch. Besides being ridiculously tasty, they are also quite healthy. One baked, medium-sized sweet potato contains 438% of your daily value of vitamin A (a white potato contains only 1%), 37% of your vitamin C, and some calcium, potassium, fiber, and iron too. All this at just over 100 calories!

With this collection of sweet potato recipes, you will find 36 delicious ways to eat sweet potatoes any time of the year. We've got side dishes, main meals, and desserts, so you can have your sweet potatoes any way you'd like.
