A root vegetable that resembles a potato, although it is quite different in taste and texture (and is not related to the potato). It has a pinkish-orange skin and a deep-orange, creamy-textured flesh that's much lighter and fluffier than that of the potato. Sweet potatoes have a slightly sweet flavour (as their name suggests). They're baked and topped with marshmallows at the American Thanksgiving table.
Sweet potatoes can be cooked in similar ways to the potato but cook much more quickly. Bake, mash or roast sweet potatoes, or use them in vegetable soups and bakes. Alternatively, add them to risottos, pasta dishes and curries.
