You Should Start Adding Canned Tuna To Your Sweet Potato Dishes
Sweet potatoes can be boiled, mashed, roasted, and more, and can also be turned into fries, casseroles, and even pie. If you prefer your sweet potatoes more savory to contrast with their natural sugary taste, try adding canned tuna to your next sweet potato recipe for a burst of flavor and protein.
Canned tuna and sweet potatoes go great together, with the tuna adding savory complexity and meatiness to the sweet and simple tubers. BBC Good Food shares a recipe that instructs you to place canned tuna atop microwaved sweet potatoes, then top with sliced red onions, chopped chili peppers, lime juice, and Greek yogurt.
If you enjoy the health benefits of sweet potatoes, know that tuna is also very healthy, with one can of light, water-packed tuna containing 42 grams of protein and a host of vitamins and minerals like iron, potassium, and vitamins B6 and B12. Both tuna and sweet potatoes are also cost-effective, making the pairing even better.
