Sweet potatoes are delicious and extremely versatile. They are also a great source of nutrition, containing:
- beta-carotene, an antioxidant
- vitamin A, which is good for eyes
- fiber, which helps keep you full
You can poke some holes into a whole potato and microwave it for a quick baked sweet potato, mash sweet potatoes, or you can roast them, like in the video below. Your roasting recipe doesn’t have to be fancy, you can just add oil, salt, and pepper!Print
