10 Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Recipes

You won’t find white potatoes up in these parts – they send our blood sugar out of whack and don’t offer us much in the nutrient department simply due to the way we consume them. Most of us don’t eat potatoes freshly dug up from the garden – we eat them fried or mashed with butter and cream.

Sweet potatoes are a whole other story. Yes, they have the words ‘sweet’ and ‘potato’ in their name, but these babies are powerhouses of valuable vitamins, minerals and fibre.

That’s why I’m sharing my top 10 favourite recipes in this heavenly gluten-free sweet potato roundup. Let the ogling commence!
