Do Vegans Eat Sweet Potatoes?

Yes, vegans and vegetarians definitely can and should eat sweet potatoes because they’re delicious and very nutritious!

However, sweet potatoes are rich in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and potassium and they should be enjoyed by everyone, not just vegans.

Can You Peel and Cut Sweet Potatoes Ahead of Time?

Yes, you can peel and cut sweet potatoes ahead of time. If you’d like to prepare the sweet potatoes the day before you serve them, peel and cut them and store them in a large bowl. Cover the sweet potatoes with cold water and store it in the fridge until the next day. Don’t store the potatoes in the water for longer than 24 hours.

You can work sweet potatoes into almost any meal- soups, stews, tacos, casseroles, quinoa salad, or salads. However, the point of this post is to prove that sweet potatoes aren’t just a side dish, they can be the main course or at least the main ingredient in a recipe. Sweet potatoes are so versatile and can be prepared in so many different ways!
