How to Make Mildly Sweet Sweet-Potato Biscuits

Marissa Sertich Velie Post a comment

Sweet potatoes started out as a way of stretching expensive refined flour in biscuit doughs for those who couldn't afford otherwise, but they're not just an economical step: They create moist, flavorful biscuits that are even more likely to be tender, because some of that sweet potato replaces what would otherwise be wheat gluten. Here are the steps to make them. More

Vegan: The Best Sweet Potato and Bean Chili

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 15 comments

When I was a kid, we had a strict "30 minutes of screen time per day" rule, which meant that every day was filled with an epic internal struggle. You can bet your butt that now that I'm my own boss, I make as few forced choices as possible. For instance, why choose only one type of chili when you can have several? Last year, I took pains to develop a recipe for the Best Vegetarian Bean Chili, which is admittedly fantastic, but you know what else is fantastic? Sweet potato chili. And that's what we're making today. More

From the Juicer: Gingery Sweet Potato Apple Juice

Drinks Lauren Rothman 1 comment

Sweet potatoes juice up extra thick and frothy, with a mellow sweetness that I felt cried out for a hit of acidity. Enter apples, whose tartness provides the perfect counterpart. A hit of fresh ginger brings some spice to the party, rounding out this simple, satisfying three-ingredient juice. More

From the Juicer: Orange Sweet Potato Juice

Drinks Carolyn Cope Post a comment

I'd never considered juicing sweet potatoes until a couple of months ago, when I went to my local, usually well-stocked fruiterer looking for a few sweet potatoes to bake for dinner. "We're all out," they said. "Everyone's juicing them now." More

Orange Sweet Potato Juice

Serious Eats Carolyn Cope 3 comments

Although sweet potato is often juiced for its nutrients, it's also a lesser known source of subtle creaminess in terms of both flavor and texture. I won't pretend this juice tastes like dessert, but it really does have an undertone of creamsicle. More

Sautéed Root Vegetables With Soy Sauce and Honey

Shao Z. Post a comment

Glazed carrots are a classic holiday side dish and an easy stove-top preparation, but I like to mix it up a bit with some Asian flavors. For this recipe, I combine a medley of sweet root vegetables: carrots, sweet potatoes, and red beets. Instead of a traditional butter and sugar glaze, they're finished in a mixture of soy sauce, honey, and sesame oil, with a touch of ginger and lemon juice for flavoring. More

Gluten-Free Tuesday: Sweet Potato Latkes

Gluten Free Tuesday Elizabeth Barbone 1 comment

Ask anyone who makes latkes what they think of their recipe (or their mother's or grandmother's recipe) and most will tell you that "it's the best." And they're right. I mean, we're talking about fried potatoes here. So when I decided to create sweet potato latkes to celebrate Thanksgivukkah, I didn't want a recipe that competed with my traditional potato latkes. After all, that recipe is the best, so why mess with it? More
