Sweet Potato Leaves Stir Fry

If you don’t have a wok, you can use a skillet.  I prefer cast iron skillets because they heat up fast, are very sturdy, and cooking time is quicker. Amazon has a wide selection of  Woks and Cast Iron Skillets.

Sweet Potato Leaves are a very good source of dietary fiber, Vitamin A, K, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Phosphorus, B6, Folate, Magnesium, Potassium, Manganese, and a good source of Vitamin E.  The leaves can be used in place of Spinach.
