It just occurred to me to share with you this. Why not swap the normal potatoes that we use with sweet potatoes instead?
Growing up, sweet potatoes to me are normally associated with making desserts. So it never hit me that I can make savory food using sweet potatoes. Why don’t you try it too? Start with mashed potatoes and any recipe that uses mashed potatoes such as shepherd’s pie and potato croquettes. There’s also potato wedges, roasted potatoes that you normally have with your fish or chicken, potato salad, potato curry puffs, fries, potato in curry gravy, potato gratin, etc..you get the gist, right?
There’s no need for you to change the recipe, simply replace the potato with sweet potato. If the recipe requires sugar, which is hardly ever the case, maybe you can opt not to add it as the name has suggested, sweet potato is..well..sweet.
Have fun experimenting!
