What Thanksgiving table would be complete without a generous helping of sweet potato casserole piled high with melted marshmallows? And who could pass on an autumnal slice of sweet potato pie?
While Southerners often associate sweet potatoes with sugar and butter, this versatile veggie actually has an impressive nutritional profile: Sweet potatoes are a great source of beta-carotene, and they’re high in vitamins, iron, potassium, and fiber. To make the most of these tasty taters, try them roasted with olive oil, sautéed in a skillet hash, or mixed into a spicy chili.
For Lucky Ramsey, of Chattanooga, home-cooked meals are the norm – and this sweet potato enchilada casserole is on steady rotation! “This is my go-to recipe for a big party or potluck. The enchiladas are vegan and gluten-free, so they are a safe bet when you aren’t sure about any food allergies. I always hear, ‘I would have never guessed these were vegan!’ after sharing them with friends.”
