Sweet Potatoe

FACTS: Sweet potatoes have a creamy texture and a sweet-spicy flavour that makes them ideal for savoury dishes. There are two types, one with bright orange flesh, and the other with pale cream flesh. Sweet potatoes have traditionally been baked, roasted or mashed, but they can also be added to risotto, pasta or curry. Sweet Potatoes can be baked or boiled until slightly soft. They can also be fried like regular potatoes to produce chips, or sliced and baked in the oven like hot potato chips or wedges. They pair well with apples, cilantro, garlic, pepper and maple syrup.
