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, the other with pale cream flesh.
Sweet potatoes are native to the tropical Americas and are sometimes referred to as ‘yams’ in the USA. These tubers are rich in fibre, vitamins A, C and B6, and an excellent source of carbohydrates. The orange-fleshed variety are also rich in betacarotene.

We had our sweet potato in a curry with chicken, and a coconut based curry sauce. Very nice taste, and a good sized sweet potato.
