How to cook Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes cook more quickly than common potatoes. They are often roasted, baked, steamed or boiled. They can also be chipped and mashed. You can also chop sweet potatoes into pieces and add them to stews, soups or risottos. They work very well in spicy dishes such as curries. In the United States, sweet potatoes are used to make a sweet pie commonly eaten at Thanksgiving. The leaves and stem are also edible.
