Sweet potato is such a versatile vegetable. It can be used to make various things such as fries, muffins or even  pies. It has the ability to work well in both sweet and savoury dishes. Not only are they versatile, but they are full of Vitamin A which helps to aid  good vision and a good immune system. They also contain potassium and magnesium.

The great thing about sweet potato patties are the fact you can combined several different vegetables and flavours into the patties. It’s a great way to consume some of your 5 a day . Sweet potato along with several other food items have become a staple in my household. Like anything eat it in moderation as sweet potato is high in calories .
