Sweet potatoes are rich in iron, magnesium, fiber, and starch as well as potassium, riboflavin, and vitamin A.

They’re also a healthy alternative for those of you who would rather die than eat carrots alone, but for those of us who enjoy carrots, they’re a match made in Heaven. Rev up that slow cooker and bring something nutritious and delicious to your home!

If you’re a fan of spicy foods, sweet potato curry soup might tickle your tastebuds just right. Curry powder adds spice complements the sweet taste that these potatoes carry without overpowering it. To make about 10 servings, you’ll need:

3 to 4 large sweet potatoes

2 to 3 large onions

2 to 3 medium carrots

4 cups of coconut milk

1 tablespoon of curry

½ tablespoons of black pepper, clove, basil, and cumin

1 cup of cilantro and/or 1 cup of chopped kale

½ cup of peanuts (optional)

Peel and cook the sweet potatoes until they brown and soften. Slice up the sweet potatoes as finely as you like, but be sure to dice the onions and carrots well. After thoroughly stirring the coconut milk, spices, and vegetables into an even blend, cook for 8.5 to 9 hours (low) or 7.5 to 8 hours (high) while stirring occasionally. Puree the soup with a blender before serving.

 

Sweet potato chili is another delectable and zesty meal. To make it, you’ll need the following:

3 cans of kidney beans

3 cans of black beans

2 cups of diced tomatoes

2 cans of tomato paste

1 to 2 cups of diced peppers (red and green)

2 cups of quinoa or brown rice

2 cans of tomato paste

2 cups of sliced scallions

2 tablespoons of olive oil

4 ½ to 5 cups of water

A small sprinkling of salt

1 ½ to 2 tablespoons each of chili powder, cumin, marjoram, oregano, thyme, and black pepper

 

Mix pre-cooked quinoa or brown rice with the rest of the ingredients. Cook with the lid on for 20 minutes, slightly reducing the heat and letting it cook for another 30 to 45 minutes.

You can also make sweet potatoes au gratin with 4 large sweet potatoes, 3 cups of milk, basil, thyme, 3 to 3 ½  tablespoons of whole wheat flour, and 2 to 3 cups of diced goat cheese or any other cheese that you prefer. Cook and chop the sweet potatoes before mixing all the ingredients together, then stir about 2 or 3 tablespoons of the basil and marjoram. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the mixture. Be sure to spread out the cheese so that it covers the liquid’s surface evenly. Keep the crock pot covered as it cooks for about 5 to 6 hours on high. Make sure that the potatoes have fully softened before serving.
