Foodie Friday: Yellow Sweet Potato

Yellow sweet potato: starchy, sweet root vegetable

Now I’ve eaten yams in the U.S. (although actually, true yams are bland-tasting) and sweet potatoes (with very pale inner flesh)…But in Taiwan, I ate yellow sweet potatoes. They’re definitely a lot sweeter than the American pale version–more akin to the bright orange counterparts used in Thanksgiving cooking.

Eating them steamed results in a quick and delicious snack or breakfast!

Fun fact: Sweet potato plants grow beautiful flowers.
