I love sweet potato.  Locally, we call it kamote. Every time we go to the market. I always buy  kilo or two.  I love it any way it is cooked. I usually just boil it to maintain the flavor.

Yesterday, I  had this for breakfast with two medium-sized sweet potato. I made some slices into fritters and the rest I  grated  and mixed it with grated cheese, one egg and  a cup of corn flour with a  pinch of ground pepper. There was no need to add salt since the cheese is flavorful.  Had two spoonfuls of mayo dressing as dip.

Sometimes I add slices of sweet potato to pork or chicken afritada instead of using potatoes. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A.  They are also a very good source of  vitamin C, manganese, copper and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus.

I planted sweet potato vines here in our small garden which I use for our famous sinigang.  I  harvest the young stems every two weeks.

Do you also eat sweet potato?
