In most cases, turning a regular recipe vegan is as easy as cutting out the meat.

You’ll also need to swap any butter or milk for dairy-free alternatives, which are super easy to find these days!

Once you’ve done that, keeping things vegan is simple.

So, from breakfast to dessert, you’ll want to give these vegan sweet potato recipes a whirl. They’re pretty darn delish.

Best Ever Loaded Sweet Potatoes and More!

1. Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes

This 30-minute vegan meal boasts more flavor than you could imagine. It’s also incredibly filling and gluten-free. 

For a relatively mild base, you’ll use baked sweet potato halves and chickpeas. However, you’ll top it in a flavorful garlic herb sauce that’s out of this world.

Then, load it with your favorite toppings. The recipe recommends cherry tomatoes, parsley, and lemon juice. 

Those work just fine, but I sometimes add caramelized onions and peppers. Yum!

2. Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

This marvelous Mexican meal is somewhere between loaded baked potatoes and stuffed peppers.

And each yummy bite features a creamy, zesty tahini sauce you’ll swoon over. 

As for toppings, go as crazy as you like: black beans, onions, cilantro, tomatoes, avocado – you name it!

Whatever veggies you like best, throw them on top and enjoy! 

3. Creamy Vegan Pasta Cheese Sauce

No one will believe there’s no cheese in this thick, creamy, and impossibly cheesy sauce.

There isn’t, though! It’s 100% vegan and 200% delicious.

It takes about 30 minutes to make and is the perfect vegan pasta sauce. It’s not bad as a dipping sauce for breadsticks, either.

4. Vegan Loaded Sweet Potato

They aren’t lying when they call these ‘loaded’ sweet potatoes!

My grandma would say, “There’s more stuff in these taters than you can shake a stick at!”

She wouldn’t be wrong, either.

These are the densest, most filling potatoes you’ll ever try. Top them with the sweet-n-tangy tahini dressing and *chef’s kiss*.

You won’t be able to stop until you’ve gobbled up every last bite.

5. Vegan Mexican Chocolate Sweet Potato Pudding

Chocolate sweet potato pudding is silky smooth, rich, and just a tiny bit spicy.

If you’ve ever had Mexican hot chocolate, you’ll have an idea of how this tastes (read: divine!).

Mexican hot chocolate is genuinely decadent with underlying heat and spice. This pudding is the same way. 

It looks elegant, has a phenomenal texture, and tastes spectacular.

What are you waiting for? You need to make this one sooner rather than later.

6. Vegetarian Sweet Potato Hash

Vegan hash is a terrific way to start your day off right. It’s a colorful, garlicky mishmash of veggies and seasonings. 

It takes just 20 minutes to make and will keep you full for hours.

Even the non-vegans in your life will appreciate this one. And if you like, you can add a runny fried egg on theirs. Delish!

7. Mexican Roasted Sweet Potato Cubes

These spicy, smoky cubes are the perfect side dish for any meal.

They’re crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, and flavorful all the way through.

It takes less than 30 minutes to make them and fewer than ten ingredients. In fact, with sweet potatoes and a full spice rack, you can make them right now!

And don’t automatically dismiss them if you don’t like hot foods.

They’re ridiculously tasty and well-spiced. However, they don’t have a lot of heat – just pure flavor. 

8. Tahini Mustard Sweet Potato, Lentil, and Arugula Salad

This filling salad is full of hearty ingredients.

And while it takes a little time to make, you can cook the lentils and sweet potatoes beforehand to save time. 

It has a robust, earthy flavor with bright, tangy dressing and juicy tomatoes.

If you’re looking for a healthy lunch option with plenty of flavors, this is it.

9. Vegetarian Sweet Potato Chili

Unlike Texas chili, which is pretty much all meat, this vegetarian chili features nothing but yummy beans and veg.

And I love it!

You’ll add cayenne, cinnamon, and cocoa powder for a rich base. It’s spicy, filling, and fresh – not greasy and heavy like some meat-based chilis can be.

Top it with vegan cheese, green onions, and whatever else you like.

Of course, it won’t have the meaty taste of regular chili, but you won’t mind that one bit. You may find that you even like it better.

That said, you could add some spiced tofu crumbles to mimic ground beef.

10. Sweet Potato, Chickpea, and Spinach Coconut Curry

In the mood for Indian food but need a vegan option? This thick, chunky curry will satisfy your cravings with just one bite.

It’s richly seasoned with half a dozen or more spices. Plus, there’s spinach, tomatoes, onions, and more.

Serve it over rice with warm naan bread. Either way, you won’t be disappointed. 

11. Vegetarian Lentil & Sweet Potato Curry

Here’s another delicious curry, though this one has lentils instead of chickpeas. It gives it a softer, creamier texture and makes the dish denser.

This one, too, tastes great over rice. You could also eat it as a comforting stew instead.

No matter how you serve it, it’s yummy and has a lovely golden color.

12. Vegan Mashed Sweet Potatoes

You just can’t beat mashed potatoes (sweet or russet) when it comes to fall side dishes.

That’s true of the vegan varieties, too. 

This recipe gives you fluffy, light, and supremely creamy mashed sweet potatoes.

They’re so warm and buttery that people won’t realize they’re vegan. 

Some people add cinnamon to theirs, but I prefer green onions. 

13. Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Mushroom Gravy

These mashed sweet potatoes are just as creamy and luscious as the recipe above.

However, these also come with dreamy mushroom gravy. 

Honestly, I’m not the biggest fan of it on these mashed potatoes. (Though I love it on mashed russet potatoes.)

Still, my best friend adores this recipe, so I couldn’t not include it. 

14. Favorite Veggie Burgers

Veggie burgers will never taste like “regular” burgers.

That said, they have their advantages. They’re healthier for one thing, and full of nutrients and vitamins. 

In many ways, I like the taste better. They’re so fresh and light, as opposed to greasy and fatty.

And these sweet potato veggie burgers are some of the best I’ve ever tried.

They’re firm, not too crumbly, and they also freeze well. That means you can prepare several and freeze them for later.

Finally, you can bake or grill these, so they’re ideal year-round. That’s the kind of convenience and flexibility I love.

15. Tandoori Chickpea-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

If you love Tandoori chicken, you’ll go gaga for these Tandoori chickpea-stuffed sweet potatoes!

They’re a hearty, healthy vegan meal you can have ready in just an hour. Plus, the hands-on work is minimal (5 minutes or less). 

The trick to making these so tasty is to get the Tandoori spice blend just right. When you do, you’ll experience an explosion of scents and flavors.

16. Sweet Potato Bread

Sweet potato bread is soft, tender, and perfectly moist. And this recipe is 100% natural with no refined sugars or artificial sweeteners.

It tastes fantastic, has a beautiful color, and a subtle sweet spiciness I adore.

I like to add walnuts, but it’s yummy as is. 

(Chocolate chips, other nuts, and dried cranberries taste great in it, too.)

17. Rosemary Sweet Potato Gratin

It’s hard to believe something so stunning could be healthy. However, that’s precisely the case with the rosemary and sweet potato gratin. 

It’s vegan, gluten-free, and relatively low-calorie. One bite, and you’ll be hooked!

Between the “cheesy” sauce and garlic and herbs, this stuff is unbelievable. Seriously, you’ll want to serve these with everything from now on.

18. Candied Sweet Potatoes

These are the same spiced, candied sweet potatoes or yams you know and love. The only difference is: they’re vegan!

But between the buttery, sugary taste and decadent streusel topping, you’d never know.

You’ll use plant-based milk and vegan butter to get the right taste and texture.

Serve them at your next holiday dinner, and they’ll be gone in a flash.

19. Paleo (or Vegan!) Sweet Potato Casserole

If you need a paleo or vegan side dish this holiday season, look no further than this sweet potato casserole.

It’s a festive staple and is inclusive of every dietary requirement.

The filling is soft, silky, and subtly sweet, while the topping is a crunchy mix of maple syrup, cinnamon, vegan butter, and pecans.

Together, they make a melt-in-your-mouth side dish that doubles as dessert.

20. Vegan Sweet Potato Salad (Dairy-Free Potato Salad)

Potato salad is everyone’s favorite summer side dish. Until recently, though, I’d never heard of sweet potato salad.

Can you believe it?

If you want something familiar but unique, you have to try this sweet twist on the classic.

It’s a chunky mix of potatoes, onions, celery, and more. It’s sweet, tangy, and dairy-free. 

It’s just as cool and refreshing as any potato salad, but it’s way more colorful and Insta-worthy.

21. Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos

I bet you’ve never had tacos like this before. They’re dense, chunky, and overflowing with veggies and flavor. 

The recipe is easy-to-follow and doesn’t take long. Additionally, they’re incredibly filling and will keep you full all night.

To keep them vegan, leave out the cotija cheese. (Or use a vegan substitute instead.) 

22. Roasted Sweet Potato and Red Pepper Soup

Want something velvety smooth to warm your belly and soul? Check out this comforting, seven-ingredient soup recipe

It’s a delectable mix of sweet potatoes, onions, bell peppers, and herbs. It has a massive amount of flavor and is more filling than it looks. 

23. Vegan Sweet Potato Chickpea Burgers

Smoky, savory, and oh-so-good, these burgers are beyond delish.

The patties are delightfully crunchy and have a clean, fresh flavor. Add the smoky BBQ sauce, a bun, and toppings, and you’re all set.

It’s an easy meal to prepare and a great way to kick off a family cook-out. 

24. Healthy Sweet Potato Black Bean Vegetarian Burritos

Who needs Taco Bell when you can make healthy veggie burritos like these?

Each one is stuffed to the brim with rice, sweet potatoes, onions, peppers, and more.

And it’s all perfectly seasoned to provide that bold, South-of-the-Border flavor. Plus, they only take 35 minutes to make.

Top them with your favorite vegan burrito toppings, and enjoy! 

25. Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Thin and crispy sweet potato fries are a healthy alternative to regular fries. They’re salty, perfectly sized for dipping, and have a fun orange color. 

You can even turn them into seasoned fries if you prefer. Add garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, or whatever else you like.
