Okinawan Sweet Potatoes

Posted by Jennifer (the RD) on March 18th, 2013

 

I went to a really fun charity event with a friend of mine yesterday.  The event had an asian theme and every single course had something on it that I haven’t tried before.  On the upper left hand of the plate is an Okinawan potato puree…yes, purple mashed potatoes!  🙂  It was sweet just like regular sweet potatoes but had a smoother texture.  These potatoes are originally from Japan, but are very popular in Hawaii. I’ve been to Hawaii so many times and have never tried them!  They are also PACKED with antioxidants and I noticed they were  on Doctor Oz’s superfoods list!
