Like butternut squash, cauliflower and the other bounties of fall, the orange-hued sweet potato is a versatile vegetable. It has an earthy sweetness that you can play up or down, put in casseroles or pastries, and easily pair with sugar or spice. Here are a few ways to bring out the best in sweet potato this season.

Sweet potatoes are brighter, sweeter (obviously) and more fun than your everyday spud. Plus, they’re the only vegetables that make eating marshmallows during dinnertime perfectly acceptable. (If you’ve tried Sunny Anderson’s kid-favorite and adult-approved recipe [pictured above], you get it.) Below are some of our favorite ways to cook the orange-fleshed beauties at this time of year.

America’s obsession with sweets isn’t always a bad thing. We’re eating more vitamin-packed sweet potatoes than ever: about seven pounds a year per person, up from only 3.8 pounds in 2002. It helps that fast-food restaurants, including Wendy’s and Burger King, have put them on the menu. And celebrities are touting them, too: Oprah Winfrey says they’re one of her favorite foods, and Glee‘s Matthew Morrison follows a sweet potato-only diet before photo shoots. Get your fill with Guy Fieri’s Whiskey-Glazed Sweet Potatoes and Ree Drummond’s Soul Sweet ‘Taters, then vote for your favorite.
