8 ways to prepare sweet potato

Did you know that sweet potatoes are very easy and quick to prepare? Sweet potatoes can be cooked in many ways. We give you 8 ways to prepare sweet potato!

1: Eating raw (yes you can!)

Peel the sweet potato and cut into strips or cubes. Delicious for dipping with yoghurt sauce or a dip of your choice.

2: Cooking

Boil the (unpeeled) sweet potato for about 5 to 10 minutes in plenty of water.

3: Grilling

Cut the unpeeled sweet potato into slices and place them on the grill. Turn the slices after about 5 minutes and leave them on the grill for another 5 minutes, until they have softened and become crispy. Tip: you can also put the slices in the toaster!

4: Stir fry

Cut the unpeeled sweet potato into wedges. Heat oil in a wok or frying pan and stir-fry the segments for about 5 minutes over a medium heat until the segments have softened and developed a crispy layer.

5: Baked in the microwave

Pierce the skin of the sweet potato with a fork all around. Put the sweet potato in the microwave at 1000 Watt for 5 minutes. The potato is now soft. Cut it in half and serve with sour cream and a little brown sugar, for example.

6: Baked in the oven

Preheat the oven to 200°-220°. Pierce the skin of the sweet potato with a fork and put it in the oven for about 10 minutes, until the potato is soft. Cut it in half and serve with sour cream, for example. Or fill the halves with mozzarella, tomato and avocado and put them back in the oven for a few minutes.

7: Steaming

Place a whole, unpeeled sweet potato in a steamer bag and steam for about 40 minutes until soft. Or cut the sweet potato into wedges and steam them in the bag for about 20 minutes.

8: Frying

Peel the sweet potato and cut into strips. Fry the strips in hot oil for about 5 minutes until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper or your favourite herbs.
