This Sweet Potato-Peanut Bisque Recipe is an Eatingwell recipe that reminds me of Massaman Curry.  It’s really quite delicious.  It came together really fast which was a nice bonus.

Do Orange and White Sweet Potatoes Taste The Same?

A cooked white sweet potato is drier than an orange one, and has a milder flavor.

Are Sweet Potatoes Healthier Than White Potatoes?

White potatoes are lower in fat and sugar, but sweet potatoes have fewer carbs and calories.

Sweet potatoes contain more vitamin A and vitamin C, but white potatoes contain more protein and fiber.

Is Peanut Butter A Source of Protein?

Peanut butter is a great source of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.

Phytochemicals are believed to protect cells from damage that could lead to cancer.
