How to choose the best sweet potato recipe for you

So how can you decide which one of these tasty vegetarian sweet potato recipes is right for you? Our goal in writing this article is to make sure that you have all the information you need to make this decision. For this reason, we provide each of the following data point for each of our vegetarian sweet potato recipes.

  • Course. The first data point we give on each of our vegetarian-friendly sweet potato recipes is the course that the recipe is intended to be served for. This will help to narrow down the field for anyone who is specifically looking for, say, a side dish.
  • Level of effort. The next data point we provide is the level of effort. Not all sweet potato recipes are created equal and some are easier to make than others. For each recipe, we provide the level of effort (relative to the average sweet potato recipe).
  • Dietary restrictions. The third data point we provide about our vegetarian sweet potato recipes is related to food allergies and dietary restrictions. For each recipe, we provide information on whether the recipe contains common allergens like nuts, dairy, eggs, and gluten. We also provide information on whether each sweet potato recipe is vegan friendly in addition to being vegetarian friendly.
  • Sweet or savory. The final data point we provide about each of our vegetarian sweet potato recipes is whether the recipe contains more sweet flavors or savory flavors. At the moment, most of these recipes lean into savory flavors. That being said, we plan to add more sweet vegetarian sweet potato recipes in the future.
