    What are other quick, easy and delicious ways to cook sweet potatoes?

    I'd like to incorporate more sweet potatoes into my diet but I've gotten tired of eating them boiled. Please write a hub about the different ways one can cook sweet potatoes. Recipes would be highly appreciated as well. Thanks.

    Wrap them individually in aluminum foil and let them bake in the oven.

    Microwave them.  Cut of a little from each end of a Yam or Sweet potato and microwave it like you would a baked potato.  Stick a fork in it to be sure it is done.  When done, slice it open put on butter and brown sugar, or just butter and seasoned salt and it is absolutely delicious.

    Mash them in a little butter and condensed milk, then wrap in spring roll wrappers. Simply bake or fry. You'll love them!

    I have peeled them and put them in a crockpot and they turn out really good. Add about 1/4 cup of water to the crockpot, add the peeled sweet potatoes and it takes about 2.5 hours to cook them thoroughly.  Then I add butter and brown sugar while they are still warm.

    I dice them into small cubes and cook them in a steamer. I add slices of red, yellow and orange peppers for great color. Chopped scallions are a nice touch. After they are done (6-10 min), remove from the heat and sprinkle a little lemon juice on top as they cool. I wrote a hub about my top 10 cookbooks on the kindle and one of books was "30 recipes for sweet potatoes". I love using sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes. They are so much more healthy. I use sweet potatoes in salads and stirfry on a regular basis.
