Sweet potato leaves have a slight bitterness when raw, but when cooked the leaves take on a mild, delicately sweet flavor with a taste similar to spinach and water spinach.
How to cook Sweet Potato leaves
When it comes to cooking sweet potato leaves, treat them like other dark leafy greens. Here are a couple of ways that you can cook with them:
- Raw: just like any dark leafy green you can add them to your salads
- Sauteed: roughly chop them up and sauté them with some butter and garlic
- Boiled: boiling sweet potato vine leaves will help remove their bitterness.
- Juiced: add them into your daily juice for a vitamin kick.
