Have you tried sweet potato?
Sweet potatoes came to us from Peru and Columbia and there’re a variety of a kind with different flash color from pale yellow to dark purple (I wish I tried those!). Most common color is orange.
Sweet potatoes are nutritious, delicious and are packed with fiber, vitamins A, C, B-6, iron, manganese and calcium. They are also quite low in glycemic index which means they could be consumed by people with diabetes.
You can consume sweet potato in different ways, but most commonly they are boiled, steamed, baked or fried. And what is great, these babies could be an independent main dish, a soup or a smoothie ingredient, a salad base or a dessert. Let’s talk about the latter.
Sweet potatoes make very tasty brownies or pancakes, but if we talk about a quick and simple recipe, you can bake sweet potatoes in the oven or even a toaster! If you cut sweet potato into thin slices of about 0.5 cm, those will be cooked in 10-15 minutes. Since sweet potato itself has a sweet taste, it’s not necessary to add too much of a sweetener to the dessert. So today I added some honey, next time it’d be maple syrup or banana, or both). But what’s important – add a pinch of salt, because sweet and salty are a perfect combination, truly complementary and revealing one another.
