A Simple Fiber-rich Dish – Fried Sweet Potatoes and Steamed Veggies

I love, love sweet potatoes, and as such, every opportunity to eat them becomes an adventure.  On a particular quarantine day, I just fried a few pieces and ate it with steamed vegetables.  This is really a filling meal due to the high fiber content of the sweet potato.  Plus, the little frying add a little crunchiness that I was so deeply craving at that time.  Try it nuh!
