The Leaves of Sweet Potatoes

We love to eat the greenies....but have you tasted these leaves of sweet potatoes lately?
The leaves can be pan-fried with some dried anchovies, shallots, garlics and sliced chillies. What is really special about this plant....it gives out it's natural sweetness! No wonder the swollen roots /potatoes are called 'sweet potatoes'. Just becareful not to overcook ok....

My mom is good in cooking this vege, but not me.

Therefore, I only cooked it once for my family.
