Notes

Both Japanese and traditional sweet potatoes work here. Japanese are purple or red on the outside and yellow on the inside but have specific seasons. Packed with nutrients like beta-carotene, B5 and B6.  A healthy carb, full of fiber and some protein. If on a time crunch, chop the veggies and add spices in advance and store in the fridge in a ziplock.
