However, you may see something else at the grocery store labeled sweet potatoes with yellowish skins, while your orange-fleshed variety is labeled yams. Guess what? Both are sweet potatoes!
Those sweet potatoes you think are yams are actually black-skinned sweet potatoes. You won’t often come across real yams in American grocery stores. True yams have brown or black skins and red, purple, or off-white flesh. Are you crazy? You thought you’d been eating yams all these years!

Simple Sweet Potato Soup is indeed vegan, almost vegan! To make this vegan treat, just replace the cheese with your favorite plant-based alternative.
