Sweet potato has no place in Turkish cuisine. It is also hard to find and expensive in Turkey. For this reason, it could not found a place for itself among my recipes until today. But recently, people started to ask for sweet potato recipes and here is the first one. It will determine its own location in line with the reactions and requests that come after this.
My favorite form of sweet potato is the one roasted in the oven. It is roasted in a much shorter time than normal potato. Since it is cooked with its own water, it gives the maximum flavor it can give. After cooking it in the same way, you can prepare it like a Turkish kumpir or extract it and crush it with salt and butter to make mashed sweet potatoes.
