Let’s face it, pumpkin fall recipes are so 2009. While I love a good recipe with pumpkin, I honestly don’t want it all the time. There are plenty of holiday parties and menu items centered around the king gourd, so I came up with a list of recipes I’ll be eating on a regular basis (which we’ve actually tried).
So without further adieu, I give you my list:

Southwest Sweet Potato Salad
A salad without lettuce is my favorite kinda salad. 👏🏻 I’m NOT a #foodblogger, but It's SWEET POTATO SEASON & I am reveling in it full force! Here’s my recipe for Southwest Salad.
- 2 Large Sweet Potato (diced)
- 1 cup of thawed frozen corn
- 1 cup of cooked black beans (rinsed & drained)
- 1 red bell pepper (diced)
- 2 green onions (sliced)
- 2 avocados, pit and skin removed, chopped
- 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro
- Juice of 2 limes
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Olive Oil
- Jalepeno slices for serving (opt)
How to make it:
After pre-heating the oven to 400F, coat diced sweet potato pieces in a couple of tablespoons of olive oil, salt, & pepper, and add them to a foil/parchment paper lined pan. Put in fully heated oven for 20-25 minutes or until you can easily poke through them with a fork.
In a large bowl combine the rest of the ingredients. Once the sweet potatoes are cooked through, add them to the bowl and mix everything together. Taste & re-season if necessary. Serve with jalapeño slices for some heat
By far one of the most surprising & delicious meals we’ve ever made. Pro-Tip: Beef up the amount of protein by using chickpea or lentil pasta! I found mine at Sprouts. This recipe makes a lot and is great for leftover lunches the next day! Get the full recipe at VeganHeaven.org.
Another flavorful take that expanded my palette! I don’t know that I’ve ever cooked tempeh before and yet it was so easy; easier than making Tofu! Try tempeh over at SweetPotatoSoul.com.
