Sweet potato leaves are a hidden gem in the world of vegetables. Often discarded, these leafy greens are not only delicious but also incredibly nutritious. They're a good source of vitamins A, C, and K, and also contain calcium and iron. They have a slightly sweet flavor and a slightly chewy texture, similar to spinach or kale.
This stir-fry recipe is a fantastic way to enjoy the unique taste of sweet potato leaves. It's a simple dish that comes together quickly, making it perfect for a busy weeknight meal.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan or wok over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add the sweet potato leaves and cook, stirring frequently, until wilted and softened, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Push the leaves to the side of the pan and add the water. Stir in the soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and white pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for an additional minute, or until the water has evaporated.
  4. Tips:
  5. You can add other vegetables to this stir-fry, such as chopped carrots, bell peppers, or onions.
  6. If you don't have soy sauce, you can use tamari or a splash of fish sauce.
  7. For a spicier dish, add a pinch of red pepper flakes along with the garlic.
  8. Serve this stir-fry with rice, quinoa, or noodles for a complete meal.
