What do you all do with sweet potatoes?

I LOVE sweet potato! They're sooooo yummy :blush: however, I'm not very adventurous when it comes to cooking them! I have done 3 things with them:

-Bake, then add baked beans and such
-Make them into chips (only done this once or twice)
-Most commonly, I cube and boil them, then add veggies and bacon and mix it all together in to a potato-stir-fry goodnesssss :smiley:

    Sweet potato nachos (leave the skins on, cut in 8 wedges, rub with oil and seasonings, bake, top with cheese, jalapenos, salsa and Greek yogurt). I also like to add them to smoothies with milk, vanilla protein powder and some pumpkin pie spice.

    Another user posted a great recipe recently. Microwave a sweet potato and put a mashed banana with cinnamon in it.

    Slice the ends off, then cut them into 1" slices. Rub a little olive oil on both sides of each slice. Mill some fresh ground black pepper on both sides (Emeril says that you've got to make both sides taste good). Sometimes I'll sprinkle some cinnamon on both sides. Place in microwave until fork tender (about eight minutes). Let cool a bit, then enjoy...they're like candy!

    Cut into chunky cubes and roast in the oven with a few squirts of garlic fry light, or drizzle with garlic oil, sprinkle with cumin, paprika and chilli (add any herbs you like eg dried rosemary or fennel seeds, season all etc). Delicious, I also add to traybakes, make sweet potato and chilli soup and sweet potato, chorizo, chilli and cumin soup is yummy too.
