Dress up your sweet potatoes with this fun recipe for Sweet Potato Stacks! The perfect vegetarian meal or side dish!

I've learned SO many things since starting Healthy Aperture -- a lot about photography, a little about human nature (FYI, in general people don't read directions *insert frown here*) and a whole lot about what people like in the way of food. 

People like fries, cookies, pancakes and patties -- oh, and spaghetti squash.

That pretty much sums it up. 

Honestly, though, there are some uh-mazing photographers who contribute to this site daily... absolutely breath taking shots of some of the most creative dishes. But ask any of them what their most popular recipe is on their site, and they'll likely come back with a very simple comfort-food type dish as their answer. 

Hello stacked food and this month's Recipe ReDux theme!

(Which we cleverly refer to as the month of "pattys," thank you St. Patrick.)

We try each month with ReDux to really lean into to what are members are asking to ReDux. But occasionally, Deanna, Serena or I will have our own little wish for the month. And this one was mine. 

The Sweetpotato Stacks I'm sharing with you today are a super simple riff on this idea of stacked food. It's basically a way to take simple sweetpotato slices and dress them up -- either as a main dish for a vegetarian meal or as a side dish, possibly even an appetizer. It's a quick and easy recipe and quite versatile. 

And it's stacked, so there's your winner right there.

Sweetpotato Stacks


Makes 2 - 3 side-dish or appetizer servings or 1 - 2 main dish servings


  • 1 large sweetpotato, cut into 24 slices (I recommend California Sweetpotatoes)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup drained, canned white beans (I recommend Bush's Best Reduced Sodium Great Northern Beans)
  • 1/2 pint grape tomatoes, quartered lengthwise
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil


  1. Arrange sweetpotato slices on a microwave safe dish; cook on HIGH 3 to 5 minutes or just until tender. Transfer to a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and top evenly with cheese. Broil 1 to 2 minutes or until toasted and cheese melts. 

  2. Combine remaining salt, beans and remaining ingredients, tossing well. Stack and arrange sweetpotato slices on a serving plate and serve with bean salad.
