~purple Sweet potatoes....my favourite..:)
Purple Sweet Potato is a root vegetable. Rich in nutrients, low in calories, high in fiber, great for diabetics and people who are carbohydrate sensitive.It is soft and sweet when you cooked it. Natural colour full of carotinoids .... antioxidant contains...it fights cancer and fights aging...just like blueberries colour.
Carotenoids are the pigment compounds that give many fruits and vegetables their vibrant colors.
You can use them to make them into chips, add olive oil and salt to roast it, make cakes, bread, bao, soft cake (kuih like purple ang koo) and even just steam it and eat it just plain.
