Sweet potato is a sweet-tasting root vegetable. The health benefits of this amazing root are plenty. It is rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory nutrients, and blood sugar-regulating nutrients to name a few. It’s super nutritious because it contains good amounts of beta-carotine which help raise blood levels of vitamin A in the body. This wonderfully sweet root is available throughout the year. Although boiled sweet potato is the most common form of eating it, it can be added to many other preparations to enhance the flavour or to bring texture to the dish. If you surf the internet, there are umpty number of ways of cooking sweet potato. Several studies have shown boiling is the best method as it helps retain the beta-caortine in the root. Stir-frying is also a great alternative as sweet potato doesn’t absorb much oil while cooking. This supercharged vegetable (either in the boiled form or oven-roated) is a great snack for fussy kids.
