Tuber Happy

Lately wifey has been complaining that I’ve been making her do dishes of vegetables she is not familiar with or those who make their appearance juts once a year unlike the cabbage, the cauliflower, the radish and the peas available through out.
Her grudge is genuine because today she found half- a-dozen sweet potatoes on her kitchen platform, eagerly wanting to be attended to. Post Diwali this cousin of regular aloo appears in the market.
Not only do they taste like dessert, but they provide some surprising health benefits. Following the ‘search’ on the tuber I realised that it’s more than just packaged starch. There are a surprising number of nutrient categories responsible for the health benefits of this underappreciated tuber. Among these categories are antioxidants, anti-inflammatory nutrients, and blood sugar-regulating nutrients. Each category brings with it valuable health benefits. In some studies, sweet potatoes have been shown to be a better source of bioavailable beta-carotene than green leafy vegetables.
