|Deadline to submit your sweet potato recipe is June 7!|
"I use sweet potatoes regularly on my menu and also use the white sweet potato called the Boniato from Cuba," said Dominique Macquet of Tamarind Restaurant in Lee Circle.
Those that are the brightest, prettiest orange color are the richest in beta-carotene, contain vitamin B6, iron, potassium and fiber and contain virtually no fat or sodium. Studies have consistently shown that a high intake of beta carotene-rich foods like the sweet potato can significantly reduce the risks for certain types of cancer.
