Sweet potato is a nutrient-rich substitute for regular white potatoes, and in my opinion, are far more tasty! Sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin A, vitamin B5, B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin and, because of their orange color, are high in carotenoids. They also have fewer calories than white potatoes — although they do have more sugar, albeit natural sugar.

All in all, they’re a fun substitute. Here’s the recipe I make:
