Sweet Potatoes as they are called in US grocery stores are considered a super food for their excellent source of beta carotene, antioxidants and fiber. They are a yam with a reddish-brown skin and flesh that can be orange, white or purple. True sweet potatoes are more starchy and do not hold together as well as yams do for this recipe.
