I always have sweet potatoes on hand. Typically I prep and slice up a few at a time. I like to have them at the ready in my fridge. When prepped this way, they last about a week in the fridge and you can bake them when you are ready to eat them. Store your prepped sweet potatoes in airtight bags.

At MM we prefer to use all natural, seasonal ingredients for recipes…the great thing about sweet potatoes is that they are versatile (use them in sweet and savory recipes) they are a vitamin A powerhouse and are available all year round. Easily found in any food market. I’ve used sweet potatoes in cookies, soups, salads, casseroles and pies. Their flavor can be adapted into so many delicious recipes, the skies the limit! Think beyond just baking them!

  1. Never had sweet potato tacos in my whole life.. never even thought about it strangely enough? Would love to try though, I’m a big fan of sweet tatos! 🙂

  2. I love these meatless tacos and adore sweet potatoes so know I’d inhale these. And that pesto…love cilantro, always have it on hand, and it’s 1/4 the price of basil pesto so that’s a nice win too 🙂

  3. I never thought of using Cilantro and Pistachios together, but it sounds delicious! I love sweet potatoes too! Thanks for a great recipe!
