Steamed Sweet Potatoes and Boiled Plantain

There are over 400 types of sweet potatoes with different colours inside and outside of the potatoes.

I am using white and orange sweet potatoes. I love the white sweet potatoes because it’s sweeter than the orange and the orange sweet potatoes helps produce more vitamin A in the body than the white so it gives a good balance.

Sweet potatoes can be cooked in several ways. It can be fried, baked, steamed, grilled and boiled. Sweet potato absorbs water easily so steaming is always a better option than boiling in my opinion. 

Sweet potatoes

Peel the potatoes

Rinse and cut in any shape you prefer. 
Pour it in a Steam pot on medium heat for 15 minutes and its done. 
Cut the plantain with the skin on in any shape you prefer. 
In a pot of water add the plantain and boil for 8-10 minutes. 
Drain, peel the skin off and serve. 
You can eat it with  stew, fried egg and some vegetables. I served it with corn on the cob and fried smoked turkey stew.
