It has long been thought that the sweet potato is a perfect food, possessing incredible nutritional value, an amazing quantity of fiber, and an incredibly sweet flavor. The versatile sweet potato can be baked, broiled, boiled, sliced into a casserole, made into a moist, sweet bread and combined into a delectable dessert pie. Inexpensive to purchase and simple to store, the sweet potato appears to be a jewel of a vegetable choice and is excellent as an addition to any meal.
Originally used as a vegetable choice or casserole offering at North American holiday meals beginning with early Thanksgiving meals, the sweet potato has moved into the mainstream of vegetable choices and can now be found any time of the year, in almost any capacity.
Naturally sweet even when cooked by itself, the glorious natural taste of the potent sweet potato is ultra-satisfying. It is even showing up as a regular side order vegetable order at major North American restaurant chains, baked and served as a regular baking potato would be, and dressed in butter and brown sugar; the latter adornment not enhancing the healthful nature of the sweet potato, but adding greatly to its incredible taste!
