Him: Potatoes are not meant to be sweet
Me: Yes they aren’t. But they are not potatoes, but sweet potatoes.
Him: Exactly! SWEET potatoes. I don’t think that should even exist in nature. Nduma any day.
Me: Nduma is delicious,totally agree, but so are sweet potatoes. If I was a sweet potato would you still like me?
Him: I would. You would be a delicious one too! In fact, I would change into a sweet potato too, just to live with my sweet potato girl.
Me: And we’d make beautiful sweet potato spawn (laughs). So that means you like sweet potatoes?
Him: No, I like you. Even if you turned into a sweet potato, i’d still like you.
My boyfriend finds it fascinating that I remember the tiniest of moments and conversations between us. The above was one of our sweet potato arguments, which I always remember when I make sweet potatoes. Today’s recipe plays up the beautiful sweetness of this root vegetable and I hope you will like is as well :))
