    If you've never had pale-fleshed Japanese sweet potatoes before, you'll be surprised by their subtler, drier flesh, which tastes unmistakably of chestnut. From Gourmet magazine.

      Simple and delicious! I scaled back the butter mixture per serving, but the flavours still permeated the potatoes. I served with Miso-Glazed Cod (a Weight Watchers recipe) and stir-fried onions and zucchini.

      I scaled the recipe down and used white miso. I loved the flavor it gave! I served with Szechuan black eyed pea salad and sticky rice. What a great meal I had! Thanks! Made for the Countries of Asia Challenge-Zaar World Tour#6 by a Looney Spoon Phoodie!
