If there was one single vegetable right now that I could convince people to eat more of, it would be sweet potatoes.

Sweet potatoes to me are the unsung hero of the vegetable world.

Growing up, I don’t ever recall eating sweet potatoes at all (aside from seeing them on the Thanksgiving table.)

I think many people don’t realize the versatility of how amazing they are any time of year (not just the holidays.)

My cooking style since starting this blog has evolved and changed into different favorites along side my old staples.

When Robbie and I got married, I had just started my blog a few short months earlier.

I was also a college student at the time, and trying to find my path for life.

Like many things over the years, my tastebuds have expanded to include room for not only the foods I already loved, but branching out to try and explore foods that I had rarely eaten before.

I think it’s sad to see people who never branched out past the foods that they grew up eating. They don’t know what they are missing!

One of my favorite parts of my blog is that it pushes me to try new foods, as my job is to literally create new recipes.

I often joke if I had never met Robbie, I would still be eating a steady rotation of spaghetti and boxed mac and cheese.

Thankfully that’s not the case!

Sweet potatoes are one of the vegetables that I discovered I LOVED.

I’m not sure when that happened, but a light bulb went off for me.

They are so versatile! From one pot sweet potato pasta to easy roasted sweet potatoes, to sweet potato nachos, to black bean sweet potato enchiladas.

This time, I decided to make them into fries!

These are not your average fries. They are not super crispy (because, sweet potatoes), but they are spiced just right and the perfect salty sweet flavor that is so addicting.

Robbie and I made a batch of these for lunch (with veggie burgers), and we polished off the whole pan in minutes.

That means we each ate a whole sweet potato each!

I loved the crispy bits, but even the fries with the least crisp were so addictive.

I really cannot say how much I love sweet potatoes!

The thinner you slice your sweet potatoes, the crisper you can get those edges.

The magical thing about sweet potatoes for me is that those blackened edges taste not burnt at all. That’s the good stuff, man.

Blackened sweet potatoes are like crack to me.

I topped mine with amazing flaky sea salt and dipped them in ketchup (although I ate a handful plain off the pan and they were just as good!)
