Steamed Purple Sweet Potato

Not sure why the purple sweet potatoes in the UK are nowhere near as popular as they are in Asia. In Hong Kong, for example, you would see these purple sweet potatoes in a cafe dessert menu or in a bakery stuffed buns.

I’d love to share more recipes on how to use this interesting alternative to the usual sweet potatoes, but for now, this is how my mum would cook them at home.

There is basically no preparation work other than just rinsing the sweet potatoes. And then simply steam them until they’re soft, about 15-20 minutes depending on how big they are.

That’s it. At home mum would sometimes make me this for breakfast or as a healthy afternoon snack.
