Healthpally cinch Styling your Sweet Potato cooking

Sweet potato is a very delicious tuber food, and it’s used in many recipes to add better taste and flavor to your food.

Let’s about some sweet potato recipes you can try out this weekend with your family.

Firstly, let’s talk about how to cook your sweet potato.

Cook the sweet potato in the saucepan

Cooking sweet potato in saucepan is probably the most common way of preparing it: peel, cut into small pieces and boil in salted water, chaktty said.

Here you have to expect a waiting time of about 10 minutes for it to be done.

Afterward, you can eat them as a side, mash them into a puree, or puree them into a delicious soup.

Prepare the sweet potatoes with Oven

Sweet Potato is Perfect for making soups, stews, risotto, curry and puree,and you can also use Irish potato as an alternative, but it’s not as sweetened as sweet potato, sure you get that.

If you have a steamer attachment, cooking is particularly gentle and quick – depending on the size, they are soft after about a quarter of an hour. 

With your oven, your sweet potato can be quickly grated for a raw vegetable salad, healthpally food advised.

Tip: Sweet potato puree can not only be used as a side dish, but also as an additive for bread and cake dough or for burger patties.

Prepare sweet potatoes in the oven

Whether fries, chips or oven vegetables – the taste of the sweet potato becomes particularly aromatic in the oven.

Cook them whole, for example as a baked potato – they need about 45 to 60 minutes to cook. 

If the sweet potato is chopped up, for example as wedges, it goes a little faster – test after 25-30 minutes with a pointed paring knife or a fork by poking in and seeing whether the inside is already soft.

Tip: The sweet potato becomes particularly crispy in the oven if it is dabbed dry after cutting and then briefly dipped in a mixture of starch and water.

Then drizzle with oil and spices and place in the hot oven.

Alternatively, turn the sweet potato in starch and then add oil, salt and pepper. This is my personal way of preparing sweet potato for dinner, and it’s always yummy.

But it could be that some of the starch sticks to it and it doesn’t look so chic. However, it is important to preheat the oven well. Doing this will solve the problem of the starch.

As an adult, it’s important you reduce your intake of starchy foods,so you need to learn the process, and you as well use Irish potato since it’s not as sweet as sweet potato.
