This recipe is not only delicious but very simple to make.

Thoroughly wash the sweet potatoes, cut into evenly sized pieces and boil in skins until soft.

Finely chop the coriander and set aside a few leaves for garnish.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I just found the site trying to find some info on how to grow sweet potatoes in Portugal as Winter is coming and I don’t know if my plants can overwinter! Well this site was a nice surprise.
    I have a favourite sweet potato recipe that makes a great vegetarian (or not) dish. I hope someone will enjoy it! Simple as can be: just chop a few vegetables of your choice, including onion; stir fry in olive oil in a large frying pan with a little salt and slices of fresh ginger (optional); when these are almost cooked, add some cubes of boiled sweet potato (boiled in water and salt for about 15 minutes) and, before serving, add some chopped fresh herbs, such as coriander or whatever you have. Enjoy!


    1. Hi Paula and welcome! Which part of Portugal do you live in? As for growing anything in Portugal the only way forward is to try! If you read any of my vegetable posts successes and failures you will understand what I mean.

      I would certainly try your recipe – thanks!
