Sweet potatoes are on our grocery list almost every week. Not only are they super nutritious, packed with vitamins A, C, and B6 (among others), they’re one of our favorite blank canvases on which to build dinner too. Bake a few or more on Sunday and be ready for delicious sweet or savory meals throughout the week.
