Introducing Sweet potato, a root vegetable that is different in taste and texture from potato! Sweet potatoes can be cooked in similar ways to the potato but cook much more quickly. The color of sweet potato skin ranges between yellow, orange, red, brown, purple, and beige. I first learned about sweet potato as ubi jalar (literally means creeping yam) in Indonesia.
Sweet potato is rich in dietary fiber, an ideal meal for our family member who is recovering.

Cook time: 30 minutes
