Sweet potatoes

.
Sweet potatoes are typically recognized by their copper-colored skin and vibrant orange flesh, though the hundreds of varieties grown worldwide display colors such as white, cream, yellow, reddish-purple, and deep purple. Although they are often found on holiday tables covered in marshmallows or mixed with added sweeteners, there’s no need! True to their name, sweet potatoes have a naturally sweet flavor, which is further enhanced through cooking methods like roasting. They are also one of the top sources of beta-carotene, a precursor to vitamin A.
Sweet potatoes with orange flesh are richest in beta-carotene. Sweet potatoes with purple flesh are richer in anthocyanins. Beta-carotene and anthocyanins are naturally occurring plant “phyto” chemicals that give vegetables their bright colors. These phytochemicals are researched for their potential role in human health and disease prevention.
Easy ways to perfectly cook them:
- baked sweet potato
- roasted sweet potatoes
- mashed sweet potatoes
- grilled sweet potatoes
- fries sweet potatoes
- crispy sweet potato
- sweet potato noodles
- sweet potato soup
- sweet potato pie.

RalRey I liked sweet potatoes since I was a child. My mother cut thin slices and soaked them in salt water for a while, then drained them well, fried them in enough oil and they were crispy. She also put pieces in the soup of meat or chicken to give it a little sweetness. Good article.

carmen3521 Bun articol! Tu folosesti? Eu nu. Nu ne place. Adica nu mancam dulce in mancare. Voi mancati combinatii gen dulce - sarat? Mie mi se pare aberant o friptura cu sos dulce..gen..si multe altele similare.. eu sint c.am in povestea aia cu ,,sarea in bucate,,. Am prieteni care maninca acele combinatii totusi.🙊🙈
