Sauteed Sweet Potato Greens

Submitted by: JULIEIRENE

Introduction

When Sweet Potatoes are grown, you can use the greens just like you use all other kinds of greens! The benefit of these is that they don't have a bitter aftertaste, and when sauteed, they almost have a sweet buttery taste about them. SP didn't have Sweet Potato greens as an ingredient option, so I used Turnip Greens for the recipe calculator, but I'm sure the nutritional value is similar. This is a great fall fare that will surely be enjoyed! When Sweet Potatoes are grown, you can use the greens just like you use all other kinds of greens!

    Thanks for the comment! It definitely is - and full of great vitamins! I served it as a side with harvest squash soup (another member's recipe post) and they went really well together! :)
