These day we can see many Asian market carried sweet potato leaves .Although the price is not really cheap but it's still within $3.00 a pound.I like sweet potato leaves stir-fry with spicy paste and shrimp.If I can't find watercress or some people called water spinach(kangkong) in the market ,I will substitute with sweet potato leaves.
Sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) leaves provide a dietary source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, dietary fiber, and essential fatty acids.
