Sweet Vegetable Varieties
Vegetables with sweet flavor profiles range in flavor and complexity. If you’re looking for a vegetable to add sweetness to your meal, here are a few to consider:
Sugar Snap Peas
Sugar snap peas are a particularly sweet variety of pea and can be eaten raw or cooked. They have a unique, floral sweetness that intensifies as they are cooked.
Carrots are a staple of many home gardens. They come in multiple varieties and offer a flavor that is mildly sweet.
Sweet potatoes, especially the orange-fleshed varieties, are especially sweet. Their flavor can range from subtly sweet to very sweet and they can be used in savory or sweet dishes.
Bell peppers are another vegetable that can offer sweetness. Red and yellow bell peppers tend to be sweeter than green peppers, but all of these varieties can be enjoyed to add an extra layer of flavor.
Sweet corn is a summer favorite that offers a pleasant sweetness that pairs well with savory recipes. Sweet corn can be enjoyed grilled, roasted, bouillabaisse, or even raw.
These are just a few of the sweet vegetables that can be added to your kitchen repertoire. Other sweet vegetables include squash, turnips, and beets. Whether you’re looking for some sweetness in the garden or on the table, there are many delicious options available.
