Sweet Potato Leaves Recipe


| 9/16/2011 11:03:12 AM



Are sweet potato leaves edible? You bet they are! My family has been using a simple, yet traditional, Filipino sweet potato leaves recipe ever since I can remember. In Tagalog, the Philippines’s national language, sweet potato leaves are called kamote tops and this recipe is usually called kamote tops salad. Sweet potato leaves salad is my brother’s favorite Filipino dish. I decided to try to make it last night and adapted this kamote tops recipe to my taste. The recipe is as follows:

Ingredients 

1 medium bunch of fresh kamote tops (or sweet potato leaves), trimmed 

5 cups water 

2 medium tomatoes, sliced or quartered 



1 medium onion, minced

Came out great! Came home and cut a few leaves without the branches from the yard on todays hot afternoon in central Florida. Loved the hot salad. No rice, maybe next time with some quinoa. Thank you for the recipe!
