So which to choose?? Most people consume white potatoes as french fries, potato chips, or loaded baked potatoes, while sweet potatoes often bring up images of pie, candied, added marshmallows… Either potato counts as a starchy vegetable and is best served baked, roasted or mashed with minimal added fats, salt and sugar. Sweet potatoes can be subbed for white potatoes in any recipe that uses potatoes. A good swap as they contain way more vitamin A, more vitamin C, fewer calories, more fiber and fewer carbs. Try the swap in the Beef Marsala & Scalloped Potatoes recipe for a more colorful dish!
