‘Beaureguard’ Sweet Potato

In Asian cuisine, sweet potato leaves are a staple in a host of dishes. Recent studies have shown that these mild tasting leaves contain five times more Vitamin C, three times more Vitamin B6 and nearly 10 times more riboflavin than the sweet tubers. Pick older leaves so young ones can keep growing—and nourishing the potatoes. Use the leaves like spinach—eat fresh on salads, sautee with garlic and olive oil or add to smoothies.
