500g. Sweet potatoes have a creamy texture and a sweet-spicy flavour, making them ideal for savoury dishes. 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 is also rich in betacarotene. Sweet potatoes have traditionally been baked, roasted or mashed, but they can also be added to risotto, pasta or curry.
